Shadow of the Lion
The last man Alexandra Whitney wants is the one she needs...
New Woman, Suffragette, and recently freed from a tyrannical father, Alex arrives in London determined to do everything she was forbidden to do, from fighting for women's rights to dressing in the latest fashions, mingling in society, and taking a lover.
When Alex literally runs into a sinfully attractive, but highly annoying man with the unlikely name of Griffin, she's not at all surprised that he is brother to the suffrage movement's fiercest enemy. But it's not long before Alex realizes that the web of intrigue surrounding Griffin involves more than just fighting the attraction between them.
For Griffin isn't just stubborn, he's in deadly peril, and it's up to Alex to prove to him that although she might have lived a sheltered life, even she knows they need to work together if they want to survive the threat that looms over them both.
Can Alex abandon a life she's dreamed of to join forces with a man who stands for everything opposite to her? And if not, how is she going to live with a heart that's not just broken, it's crushed beyond repair?
