Solving a murder is dangerous business. So is falling in love…
Chastity, daughter of the Duke of Daventry, will not stand idly by while her sister is suspected of murder. Since no one wants to help, she’ll take matters into her own hands. The plan? Simple. She’ll disguise herself as a servant and investigate. But when her ruse leads her to the enigmatic Lord Kendall, Chastity soon realizes nothing in her life will ever be simple again…
As much as Valentine would like to ignore the scheming beauty who claims to be a servant, he simply can’t. He needs her. Bringing his footman’s killer to justice would be impossible without her, because the vivacious Chastity can do what he can’t—talk to people and gain their trust. So, he’ll accept the chaos she brings into his life. Accepting her into his heart, however, is another matter entirely…
Fortunately for Chastity and Valentine, intrigue has a way of putting lovers on the path to happily ever after. But first, they’ve got a killer to catch…

Chastity is a duke’s daughter and a widow which means she has more freedom to do things than if she hadn’t been married. She will not stand by when it is insinuated that her sister is a murderer.
She decides to disguise herself as a servant in the household where the murdered man worked. She thinks she might be able to pick up some information as she investigates as to who the murderer really was.
Lord Valentine Kendall is an earl and wants also to discover the killer of his footman. Although he does not really want Chastity around, he realises she might be able to find some information about the murderer.
This is a light well written sexy romance.
I really enjoyed reading this story.

It has been a while since I have read this author, the usual too many books to read and not time enough. Why I decided to not let this upcoming pass by me without reading it.
And I am glad I did it.
It is much different from the novellas I last read, first it is a full length story, second it is with more mature characters.
Chastity thought she married for love, but what a sixteen year old truly knows about love. She soon discovered only her breeding, beauty were an asset in her husband’s eyes.
Left widowed rather young, she now enjoys her single status and has no plan to marry again an put her self respect under someone else thumb. Plus she is quite proud of the work she does for their investigation society, as she is not one to sit idly.
Valentine is quite the recluse, he has forsaken society a long time ago, unable to forgive the gossip mongers their cruel hearsay and what it pushed his father to do. He is a simple man of simple needs and is back in the city only because he can’t refuse a Duke’s invite.
They meet, well they clash upon their first encounter. On the same night, Valentine’s nephew is found dead, a supposed suicide and the blame points toward Chastity’s half sister.
To restaure her sister’s reputation, Chastity sees not other way than instigating it under a maid’s disguise.
This was a fun read, with a lady not afraid of hard work and a grumbling Earl who is more bark than bite. Their chemistry scorches the pages, yet their past still stand between them, between her bad marriage and his secrets, they are oft at loss about what they feel and how to act about.
