LATE FOR THE WEDDING by AMANDA QUICK
An invitation to a country house party at Beaumont Castle
provides a perfect solution to Tobias and Lavinia's most
exasperating challenge: how to escape the chaos of London
for a remote, relaxing--and above all romantic--retreat
from prying eyes and wagging tongues. But the lovers' plans
are foiled when their first cozy interlude of the weekend
is disrupted by the appearance of a stunning woman from
Tobias's past. Aspasia Gray's beauty is as haunting as her
connection to Tobias. Her long-deceased fiancÚ was a friend
of his--in addition to being an eccentric assassin. The
mysterious nature of the bond between Tobias and Aspasia
makes Lavinia more than a little uncomfortable. Especially
as her first encounter with Aspasia occurs when she finds
her in Tobias's bedchamber...
It seems Aspasia is seeking protection--and solace--after
receiving an ominous message that eerily recalls the past.
Suddenly the obstacles standing betweenTobias and Lavinia
appear greater than just a little London gossip--and far
more deadly.When events at the castle suggest someone is
imitating the dead killer's methods, the team of Lake and
March fervently pursue the investigation--and each other--
as their leads take them from Society's most elegant haunts-
-and most discreet hideaways--to London's shadiest
backstreets. As their relationship heats up, so does the
intrigue. Soon Lavinia will have to employ all her talents
to flummox the scoundrel who so rudely interrupted her
rendezvous. And then she and Tobias can get back to more
