An Unlikely Alliance
“[H]ooks us with absorbing storytelling.” —BOOKLIST
Gypsy fortune teller Mademoiselle Magda has taken London by storm with her uncanny predictions—and only Lord Kerrigan suspects that she is not what she claims to be. And he is right, for poverty had thrust seamstress Magda Beaumont, the child of a French physician and a Russian gypsy princess, into passing herself off as a tarot reader to the ton. But lacking her mother’s powers, Magda drew the wrong card and made an enemy of the Earl, who causes her pulse to race whenever he’s near. He sets out to expose her, only to find himself captivated by the beautiful young woman.
But when Magda’s predictions threaten to expose a villainous plot, she finds herself in deadly danger. Now Magda and Lord Kerrigan must join forces to solve a decade-old murder. And as Kerrigan comes closer to discovering the truth, Magda fervently wishes she could predict the future—to see if she will lose a love that promises splendid bliss.
