Benedict Wincross appears in Camilla Ferrand's life as quickly as the gunfire pursuing him. Though his name belies the fact, he is obviously no gentleman. But Camilla realizes Benedict may be just what she needs: a temporary fiancé to satisfy her family's worries. And Benedict needs something in return: an entrée into Chevington Park, Camilla's estate, to conduct an undercover investigation into corruption—without Camilla's knowledge. Each was drawing the other into a dangerous deceit—for even if they survived the danger of Benedict's mission, how would they undo the love between them?

A woman disgraced by a lie. A beast of a man with a cold heart. Their love will transcend continents. Sabine Goddard is a young woman of high standing raised by her Oxford Don uncle. When a lie destroys her reputation, she and her elderly uncle travel to Turkey to escape the gossip. In Constantinople, she meets Edward, Marquess of Foye, a man hurt by the lie that forced her to leave London. Foye fascinates Sabine. He's outsized and refers to himself as a beast, but he doesn't care that she's better educated than many men. His belief in her innocence intrigues her and earns her admiration. Sabine captivates Foye and the far-from-handsome man can scarcely believe she returns his feelings. When Sabine and her uncle fall into the hands of a Turkish Pasha, Foye will do anything to secure the safety of the woman he loves. Indiscreet moves from Regency England to the exotic locales of Turkey and Syria in the midst of the Napoleonic wars. The winner of the 2010 Bookseller's Best Award for Best Short Historical Fiction, it features fast pacing, simmering chemistry, meticulous research, and strong central characters.
