When that dissolute scoundrel, the "honorable" Edward Montgomery, was found lying in a pool of blood, suspicion fell on his comely widow, Allie. True, the gentle beauty had every reason to hate her odious husband, but was she a cold-blooded murderess? Her brother-in-law, John Montgomery, the Earl of Norwich, thought not. Indeed, he was determined to apprehend the real culprit--even if it meant mixing with his late brother's nefarious cronies and a certain golden-haired charmer. But time was running out for Mrs. Montgomery, and if the handsome earl did not prove her innocence soon, her fate would be the gallows...and a love forever lost.
