For those of you who loved Nathaniel and Henry in DEVERELL'S DILEMMA this is the sequel. On the cold streets of Regency London, it's easy to hide your identity... but not your heart Henrietta Hepplewhite has a secret. For five years she's hidden behind short hair and scruffy breeches, ducking down alleys and working odd jobs with other orphaned street lads. But it's only a matter of time before her true identity is discovered. When her uncle finds her, she knows he'll make her pay for her defiance. Nathaniel Bromfield also has a secret. Under his dusty, disheveled exterior, Nathaniel is a young man of wealth and respectable lineage, hiding from the Bow Streets Runners and fleeing a bogus murder accusation. He must find a way to survive until his innocence is proven... not so simple without the help of his young orphan friend, Henry White. Together, Henry and Nat face danger on the streets of London and learn to rely heavily on each other. But no thieving uncle or murderous street bully can prepare Henrietta for the biggest challenge of her life--telling her best friend she's a girl. Sparks fly in this lively regency tale of mistaken identity and hidden affection. Will Henrietta and Nat uncover true love within their friendship? or will it remain hidden behind Henrietta's Hoax.
