Product Description

USA TODAY bestseller on sale for a limited time

Lucinda Brant's mysteries explore the darker side of her richly authentic 18th century world. Along with her trademark wit and high drama there are deeper subplots and even quirkier characters that will have you shuddering and laughing in equal measure.

Spring 1763. Career diplomat Alec Halsey returns to London to the shocking news his estranged brother has not only killed his friend in a duel but is engaged to the woman he hoped to marry. The dead man’s mother wants Alec to investigate, so he reluctantly attends a weekend house party celebrating the engagement. Houseguests get more than they bargained for when a lady’s maid is murdered, the bride-to-be is attacked, and a guest is shot dead. Uncovering a connection between these sinister acts and his brother's duel, Alec confronts a cruel twist of fate and why his brother will go to any lengths to ruin him in Polite Society.

I challenge anyone to read Deadly Engagement and not crave more from the handsome Alec Halsey with his high sense of morals, dark good looks, and divine analytical mind.” —Francine Zane, Readers’ Favorite, rated 5 STARS

An exciting and gripping tale of passion, murder and mistaken identity. This is one Georgian page-turner I savored until the very end.” —Jill MacKenzie, All About Murder
