In this new Regency romance, Elizabeth knows she must protect her heart from the charm of her new husband, Lord Torrington. She is not, however, prepared to protect her life.
When the widowed Lord Torrington agreed to spy for the crown, he never planned to impersonate a highwayman, let alone rob the wrong carriage. Stranded on the road with an unconscious young woman, he is forced to propose marriage to protect his identity and her reputation, as well as his dangerous mission.
Trapped not only by her duty to her country but also by her limited options as an unwed mother, Miss Elizabeth Cantrell and her infant son are whisked away to Middlecrest Abbey by none other than the elder brother of her son’s absent father. There she is met by Torrington’s beautiful grown daughters, a vicious murderer, and an urgent hunt for the missing intelligence that could turn the war with France. Meanwhile she must convince everyone that her marriage is a genuine love match if her new husband has any hope of uncovering the enemy.
Determined to keep her son’s true identity a secret, Elizabeth will need to remain one step ahead of her fragile heart, her uncertain future, and the relentless fiend bent on her new family’s ruin.

The same moment Elizabeth Bennett discovered Mr. Darcy’s true character in Pride and Prejudice, Abigail Wilson realized she would never be the same. Caught up in an endless supply of Regency novels for the past decade, she’s used this unique passion to create Gothic mysteries with a heart.
A self-proclaimed chai tea addict and mother of two crazy kids, Abigail fills her spare time with camping, hiking, water skiing, and canoeing. She hopes to visit all 59 national parks in her lifetime, and with a dozen or so under her belt, she is well on her way. She currently resides in Dripping Springs, Texas with her husband and children.
In 2017 Abigail won WisRWA’s Fab Five contest and American Christian Fiction Writers’ First Impressions contest in the Historical Romance category.
