Deadly Vows
by Brenda Joyce

Something happened on the way to the wedding...

Nothing can stop Francesca from marrying Calder Hart---except the scandal that threatens to tear them apart.

On the morning of her wedding to Calder Hart, amateur sleuth Francesca Cahill is lured away to a private viewing of the one thing that can destroy her whole family: a nude painting of her. Her desperate quest to find the indecent portrait and preserve her family's reputation leads her into a dangerous thief's trap with no way to escape until it's too late. Her wedding is ruined---and so is the trust and love that Calder once felt for her.
