Sleeping Engagement (Everard Family #3)
"How difficult would it be to strike a short conversation with the man who had once been your entire world?"
SHE HAS A MISSION...
To be the only female member of the secretive League of Founders is challenging, but Margaret Everard has proven herself worthy. The League has become her life. Gone is the frail, naive girl who had her heart broken, replaced by the strong woman in a world of men who make it their mission to protect the Town. Now, Margaret finds herself face to face with the most difficult task yet: spy on the man suspected of murder, the same man who once broke her heart.
HE RETURNS WITH A SECRET...
Cole Devitt left Wickhurst an angry, vengeful man. He left not merely the friend who caused his sister's death, but also the sister of that same whom he had long ago vowed to marry. Now, he returns as the new Head of the Men of Courts of Wickhurst to continue an unfinished work, one that reeks of conspiracy. But being in Wickhurst means an encounter or two with the woman he once chose to leave for hate.
Will their individual mission bring them together at last, or will it merely prove to them that their love is really never meant to be?
Still set in the fictional place of the Town, this third story of the Everard Family Series follows the journey of a strong woman and her quest to find a killer and perhaps, the closure to a love never forgotten.
