Product Description

Brander Hansen is the Baron of Hamar to some people, and Lord Olsen - a discreet gentleman of discovery - to others. Participating in his trade allows him to rebuild his fortune, and attain a lifestyle befitting his title. When one of Norway's upstanding citizens shoots a man on a crowded street in Christiania, and then turns the gun on himself, Brander is asked to solve the murder/suicide.

Baroness Regin Kildahl Hansen dons a disguise to help her husband with his investigation - even as he risks his own funds to discover if the deaths are connected to a financial opportunity. Together they uncover a massive scheme that risks both Brander's financial security, and the financial stability of Norway's noble class.

At the height of the investigation, the Hansens receive word that Brander's father in Arendal is dying; a message that revives Brander's anger at his father's betrayal. He refuses to visit his father until the investigation is finished. And when he arrives in Arendal with Regin, he finds he is less than welcome.

EXCERPT

Regin looked at her husband. "This woman is desperate."

His brow twitched: Why do you think so?

She looked at Brander's cousin and valet, Niels Jensen, who appeared bemused as well. "Do either of you think your wives would willingly share your 'affections' with another woman?" she asked.

The men exchanged horrified glances.

"No..." Niels slid his glance to Brander obviously deferring the question to her husband.

What are you thinking? he asked.

Regin held up one finger. "First, if you both try to talk to her, she'll run scared. Can you imagine facing two men who want to interrogate you about your relationship with a member of the royal family?"

Brander's eyes narrowed.

She held up a second finger. "Secondly, she's a woman, so her options are limited. And she's in some sort of recent trouble."

He leaned his elbows on his desk.

Up came a third finger. "I am a woman. I have a title. I outrank her. I was at the masquerade ball dancing with my deaf husband and being congratulated by her prince. She had to have seen me."

You want to speak with her, Brander motioned. Instead of us.

"I believe that makes the most sense," Regin posited. "She won't be afraid of me, and she'll see my position as one which might assist her in attaining her goal."

Which is?

She stuck to what her gut told her. "Security and status."

Brander's changeable eyes were more gray than blue or green at that moment. His head began to move in a rhythmic nod: That does make sense.

"I can send her a message today and meet with her tomorrow," Regin pressed.

"What will you try to discover?" Niels asked.

Regin gave then a sly look from under her lashes. "Why she's desperate enough to give up all hope."
