His name is Locke – James Locke – and he’s an agent in Her Majesty’s service.

He has no family and his work is his life, leaving neither the time nor interest for relationships of any type.

Her name is Lusinda Havershaw and she’s Nevidimi, with the inherited ability to become invisible in moonlight. She’s devoted to her family and her exceptional, though unfortunately uncontrollable, skill is put to use reclaiming stolen objects for their owners to provide financial support for her aunt and two younger sisters.

In 1877 London, James is about to break into a safe in a suspected traitor’s home, to retrieve a list of British agents before the information can be handed over to the Russians, when his unbelieving eyes see a ruby necklace floating out of the safe and across the room. He follows and discovers Miss Lusinda Havershaw and her secret gift of becoming invisible in moonlight. By threatening to expose her and her family, he convinces a reluctant Lusinda to work with him to retrieve the stolen list of agents and uncover the Russian spy who has stolen them. As James and Lusinda are drawn deeper into intrigue they are also drawn to one another but both resist the attraction. James is fascinated by Lusinda but he guards his heart well and has vowed to never marry, knowing that anyone he cares for will be in danger of being captured and harmed by enemies of England. Lusinda has learned the hard way that secrets must never be shared with anyone outside the family and has been careful to not become close to anyone but fears her feelings for James may be turning to love. Eventually, at the end of a journey that is suspenseful, humorous and poignant, James and Lusinda both discover that trust is essential to true love and true love is worth any risk.

Donna MacMeans is quickly becoming one of my auto-buy authors. I thoroughly enjoy her voice and found the touch of paranormal she wove into this historical absolutely delightful!
