The Montesoro Legacy
by Stella Riley

A dangerous step-brother … a letter from a Venetian bank … a secret key … and London’s most fashionable portraitist.

When Sir Jerome Farrell learns that his step-siblings, Mariella and Donato Talbot, are beneficiaries of an unexpected inheritance, he decides to seize it for himself.

Already struggling to protect Donato from their step-brother’s other intentions, Mariella realises two things. To claim the Montesoro legacy, Jerome must make a journey of several weeks; she also knows, as he does not, that without a certain item in her possession, he will return empty-handed.

Successful, sought-after and contemplating marriage to a lovely, young widow, Leo Brandon’s commission to paint Charlotte Farrell, takes him to Surrey for three days. Had he known how those days would re-arrange his life, he might have made the catastrophic mistake of staying in London. Fortunately, he didn’t.

Meanwhile, the agents of M Section are interested in Sir Jerome for reasons of their own and are not pleased when he leaves the country. Mariella, however, is delighted to see the back of him.
