A thrilling Regency romance, for fans of the Bridgerton series.

From the windswept cliffs of Cornwall to the glittering ballrooms of St Petersburg, this is high voltage Regency romance with a twist.

1819. Jack 'Crow' Crowlas, the charismatic and troubled hero of K.J. Whittaker's first novel, False Lights, has married his feisty love, Hester, and with their baby daughter, settled down to enjoy their new life as Lord and Lady Lamorna of Nansmornow in Cornwall. But for Crow, trouble is never far away and as Cornwall seethes with rebellion, he is arrested for treason.

Spared execution on condition that he undertakes a highly dubious mission to St Petersburg, he finds himself tangled in a snare of treachery and illicit passion, violence and sexual deceit, where not only his love for Hester, but also his relationship with his only brother, serving with the British army in Russia, will be tested to the limit and beyond.
