As the eldest daughter of Sir Alfred Whitford, Kat has always played by the rules. Her little sister, Ellie, lives to break them. After running away to Paris, Ellie, has disgraced the Whitfords by taking up with a Nazi officer and living in luxury as the world around her burns. Ellie has no intention of returning to a life dictated by the British upper class, but Kat is determined to change her reckless sister’s mind–and save her family’s reputation–even if it means stealing into Nazi-occupied France.

On her first night in Paris, Kat meets Scotsman Barrett Anderson–the owner of a local bar and an undercover agent training Resistance fighters. In addition to his political identity, Barrett has a secret he’s keeping from the two sister: their father has hired him to return them safely to London. If Barrett proves successful, the payout will afford him a chance at a new life and an escape from his dark past–an opportunity he cannot afford to lose.

When Barrett discovers that Kat’s social wiles could be useful to the cause, they join forces to infiltrate the Nazi’s inner circle. Neither Kat nor Barrett expects to fall for the other, but when Kat discovers Barrett’s secret, she questions his motives and the wisdom of her feelings. Can she trust Barrett with her heart, or is he using her and her family’s name to climb the very social ladder that has betrayed her?
