In the Murderess of Mayfair, history meets mystery, in this heart-melting Regency Romance.
After two hellish years married to an absolutely heinous man, Elise Sinclair, The Marchioness of Bristol awakes to find her husband has been murdered. Three years later after living as frugally as possible, the money has run out, and Elise has no choice but to remarry, as much as she loathes the idea of another man controlling her, let alone touching her, she's run out of options. The problem is she is known throughout the ton as the "Murderess of Mayfair". In an attempt to clear her name, and find a match, she hires former Bow Street Runner and current womanizer Oliver Woodgate to solve the mystery of her dead husband. Oliver finds the fetching widow cold, and haughty but agrees to help her, against his better judgment.
Clearing Lady Bristol’s name becomes the least of their problems, as a killer is on the loose across Great Britain, targeting widows, and soon Elise finds herself in the killer's grasp. Now with two mysteries to solve, Oliver has his hands full. He must keep Lady Bristol safe, not only from the murderer but from his own dark desires. Elise and Oliver work together finding clues all over London, from glittering ballrooms to seedy gaming hells, all while trying, (and failing) to keep their hands off each other. Delve into this first novel in a series of friends and widows, who get a Second Chance at Love.
