Ten years ago, Clayton Campbell discovered that Olivia Swift's father was committing a crime, and he shared his discovery with her. Unfortunately she told her father about it, and Clayton paid the price. For years, Olivia believed he was dead... until today. Now he tells her that he owns her father's debts and will not rest until he is destroyed.

As if that weren't bad enough, now Olivia has been kidnapped. For the past ten years Clayton has been a spy knows as the Cipher. Unfortunately, Olivia's kidnappers think she is a spy as well and have taken her to St. Petersburg for her supposed code‑breaking abilities. Suddenly her safety is paramount to Clayton and he races to St. Petersburg to save her. Once he finds her, unfinished business keeps them from returning to England.

Anna Randol's latest may be a sequel, but readers will be enthralled regardless of whether they've read Sins of a Virgin. This author's addictive skill will ensure readers will pursue her other tales. The unusual setting enhances this engrossing story.

     Madeline Valdan was rescued from the hangman to work for the
British government as a spy, but now that the war is over, she and her colleagues have been let go with a very small payment. She is determined to get a great deal of money, and marriage is something she will never submit to.
   She always used seduction in her line of work so she conceives an auction where she will sell her virginity to the highest bidder. But she will need security, as well as someone who can investigate
her bidders to be sure they can pay.  She is assigned Bow Street Runner
Gabriel Huntford.
       
     Seven years ago Gabriel’s twin sister was murdered, and now another
woman has been killed in the same way. He is closer than ever to solving his sister’s murder, but he has been taken off the case because he is too close to it. Guarding Madeline is frustrating at first, but then he realizes that some of her bidders are also suspects in the murders. Now he can investigate his own case and guard her at the same time. Madeline is powerfully alluring, but there is also a vulnerability that she takes great pains to hide. They fight mightily to discover each other’s secrets, and though they resist, they fall for each other.
       
     Anna Randol launches a new series with this compelling tale. She
injects some freshness into the Regency by featuring much of the action in the demi monde. Readers will find themselves entranced by Ms. Randol’s brilliant turns of phrase and fascinating characters.
