The Silverton Scandal
When a highwayman held up the stagecoach on which Miss Eleanor Grantham was travelling, she had no idea that she would come face to face with the same man later at the house of a family friend. Without his mask he was Lucien, Lord Silverton, brooding, dangerous and charismatic, but why had he disguised himself, and what had he hoped to gain?
Faced with a problem of her own Eleanor enlisted his help, and together they stepped into an adventure that embraced blackmail and cold-blooded murder.
Scandal ensued, and to protect her reputation Lucien offered her his hand in marriage, but Eleanor had no interest in his hand without his heart.
