This one was a good one because of the courting, the secrets, and the interactions between characters. To summarize, the hero finds out that a girl whom he fell in love with at first sight 12 years ago is coming out of her one year mourning period for her dead husband ( Well, at the beginning, it ended six months ago but she still didn't come out to see the sun). There's a lot of gossip over his death and many believe that the heroine is responsible, which the hero denies are even true. Yet, high Society nobles turn their backs to her. The heroine has turned into a shell of her former self from an abusive marriage and now critical society. However, she is urged by her maid/cousin to attend the parties in order to move forward. Now, the minute the hero hears of the heroine's acceptance of the letter, he's happy as a pig in mud to finally see the girl he fell in love with. The funny thing is the both of them are surrounded with rumors with the heroine being called the black widow & the hero's title of widow killer. I especially like how the hero defends the heroine privately among his friends and publicly by talking to her in front of all the gossipy gabbies. Unfortunately, their words push the heroine to push the hero away and she runs back to her room. Now, the hero is requested by his friend who is like British Intelligence to discover if the heroine is a spy for the French because they found out information leaked to the French was something that the dead husband knew. Now, they want the hero to seduce the heroine and see if she's really a spy. The hero is in a real pickle because he's all King and Country but he doesn't believe the heroine is guilty. He only agrees to do in order to prove the heroine's innocence. For me, I found out who spy was before moving on to the second book but I won't say who. The next morning, the hero finds the heroine and encourages her to stand up against the rumors and be proud of herself. He also takes her out for a carriage ride, giving her a happy memory. This is where we end on book 1
