Originally published April 2003 in mass market paperback by Pocket Star.
Vermillion Lee Durant is well versed in the art of seduction and determined to remain loyal to the destiny she was born to fulfill. But to Captain Caleb Tanner, a British officer hunting a spy who has been leaking information to the French, she may be more than the flirtatious young woman she seems. Assigned to uncover the truth about Vermillion and her aunt, Caleb poses as a groom at the Durant racing stables — and fights an attraction to Vermillion that may cloud his judgment and threaten his heart.
Both captivated and annoyed by the handsome, arrogant groom, Vermillion vows to resist him — knowing she must choose allegiance to her family over the desires Caleb has awakened. But passion and truth cannot always be denied, even for two lovers who are masters at keeping secrets.
