Enjoy an excerpt: “Ah, Mr. Hales,” said a portly gentleman in a dandruff-bedecked black suit as he entered the room from some inner chamber. He gave Ewan a searching glance.
Orphaned as a boy, Ewan Hales is proud to make his living as secretary to the manager at Redcake’s Tea Shop. But the startling news that he’s heir to the Earl of Fitzwalter changes everything. While tendering his resignation to lovely Matilda Redcake, however, Ewan is struck by her spirit, the luscious bow of her lips—and a realization. Matilda might not marry a working man—but will she wed a future nobleman?
Ewan’s unruly hair and roguish kisses are tempting, but Matilda has far too many problems to consider romance. With sabotage at a cake factory threatening the family empire, she must focus her considerable willpower on keeping Redcake’s from ruin—until she learns that her young son has been kidnapped. Together, she and Ewan must uncover the truth before they can savor the sweet freedom of love…
“Yes, sir.” Ewan stood and shook hands with the solicitor. “I confess I do not know why I was summoned here. What was the purpose of your letter?”
“The matter was too delicate to put into writing.” The man glanced over him again.
Ewan knew his appearance to be impeccable, other than his untamable hair, so that couldn’t be the reason for the man’s curiosity. “I cannot take much time away from my duties, Mr. Norwich. Could you please be brief?”
The other man sat down, seeming to expand to fit his chair, with the air of one who planned a conversation of considerable length. “What do you know about your family?”
Ewan slicked back his hair as he considered this, his tension heightening from the intent of such a question. Was a legacy due to him? Every orphan, even one of twenty-seven years of age, imagined lost relatives out in the world hoping to find him.
