All’s fair in love and war.

Lady Lily Spark has been missing, presumed dead, for years. Now she’s back in England, and in possession of a secret that could change the course of history. And she has no intention of giving it—or herself—up to anyone.

John Tacitus Ware doesn’t know Lily’s secret. All he knows is that she has one—and he’ll have to win it from her if he wants to regain his place at the heart of British diplomacy.

John and Lily are playing a dangerous game, with war and peace as the stakes. But as John’s ruthless ambition collides with Lily’s skilled manipulation, the attraction between them may change the rules for good.

THE ORPHAN PEARL by Erin Satie is an interesting Victorian Historical Romance. #3 in “No Better Angels, but can be read as a stand alone. This was my first time reading Erin Satie, and I enjoyed this story. I hope to read the fourth and final installment in “No Better Angels”. I also, intend to go back in read the other two in this intriguing story.
This is Lady Lily Spark and John Tacitus Ware’s story.

John, is an ex-British Diplomat, and has been recruited to find out her secret, which could cause a matter of war and peace.

Fast paced, action packed tale with political intrigue, suspense, secrets, mystery passion and romance. A worthy story with well developed characters and an intriguing storyline. Fans of intrigue, Historical events, suspense, mystery and romance, I believe will enjoy “The Orphan Pearl”. An enjoyable and satisfying read!
