“[A] smart, satisfying Regency romance… readers craving substantive mystery and intelligent leads will savor this pitch-perfect love story.” ―Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

Historical romance legend and New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter introduces a brand new trilogy sparking with sensuality and wit, as a recently-deceased Duke’s will reveals that he has mysteriously bequeathed his vast fortune to three seemingly unrelated and unknown women. In this series opener, one recipient of the inheritance—an independent detective—and the Duke’s spurned nephew band together to determine the reason for the strange bequeathal…as their unexpectedly good teamwork leads to sizzling attraction…

Minerva Hepplewhite has learned the hard way how to take care of herself. When an intruder breaks into her home, she doesn’t swoon or simper. Instead she wallops the rogue over the head and ties him up—only to realize he is Chase Radnor, a gentleman and grandson of a lord, and a man who makes it his business to investigate suspicious matters. Now he’s insisting that Minerva has inherited a fortune from his uncle, a wealthy duke. Only one thing could surprise her more: her sudden attraction to this exasperating man.

Chase can’t decide whether Minerva is a wronged woman or a femme fatale. Either way, he’s intrigued. Maddeningly, with her unexpected inheritance, she has set up a discreet detective business to rival Chase’s own. She may be the perfect person to help him uncover the truth about his uncle’s demise. But as proximity gives way to mutual seduction, Chase realizes he craves a much deeper alliance...
