The Matchmakers (Book 2)
Adelaide Duveen has resigned herself to the notion that she's to remain a spinster forever. However, when she stumbles upon Gideon Abbott engaged in a clandestine activity during a dinner party, Adelaide finds herself thrust into a world of intrigue that resembles the plots in the spy novels she devours. Former intelligence agent Gideon Abbott feels responsible for Adelaide after society threatens to banish her because of the distraction she caused to save his investigation. When Adelaide finds herself a target of the criminals in Gideon's case, the love between them threatens to be quenched for good - along with their lives.
