A rollicking historical adventure from New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp, originally published in 1997. Benedict Wincross appears in Camilla Ferrand’s life as quickly as the gunfire pursuing him. Though he is obviously no gentleman, Camilla realizes Benedict may be just what she needs: a temporary fiancé to satisfy her family’s worries. And Benedict needs something in return: an entrée into Chevington Park, Camilla’s estate, to conduct an undercover investigation into corruption—without Camilla’s knowledge. Each is drawing the other into a dangerous deceit—for even if they survive the danger of Benedict’s mission, what will they do about the love that’s grown between them?

**Top Pick, 4 ½ Stars -- Romantic Times Book Reviews** From NEW YORK TIMES bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels comes the first in her ENTERPRISING LADIES series. There is a serious side to this romantic farce; two people who think they know who they are, what they want ... and then get smacked in the face with the realization life doesn’t always fit into neat little boxes. (Plus! Readers and reviewers agree: Indiscreet has one of the funniest Prologues in fiction.) "There is so much wit and wisdom in the pages of INDISCREET that you'll be filled with wonder, and giggling all the while. Kasey Michaels returns with all the hallmarks that have made her a Regency romance treasure: humor, unforgettable characters and a take on the era few others possess. Sheer reading pleasure!" -- RT Book Reviews; Nominated for Best Innovative Historical Romance, 1998 **For a limited time, get two free books from Kasey > (just copy and paste into your browser)**

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ... the pitiful sticks of legs eloquently tell their own tale. Unable to find food, all are drinking enormous quantities of water to stave off the pangs of hunger. A man who has been in India says that all drink like this in famine time, which inflates the stomach to a dangerous extent, and is the forerunner of certain death. To the babies we give all the scraps of food we can gather up after our own rough food is eaten, and to see the little disappointed faces when there is nothing is sadder than to watch the wounded being carried in. If we ever get out we have some heavy scores to settle, and some of our rifles will speak very bitterly. Thus enclosed in our brick-bound lines, each of us is spinning out his fate. The Europeans still have as much food as they need; the Chinese are half starving; shot and shell continue; stinks abound; rotting carcases lie festering in the sun; our command is looser than ever. It is the merest luck we are still holding out. Perhaps to-morrow it will be over. In any case, the glory has long since departed, and we have nothing but brutal realities. XV THE ARMISTICE 17th July, 1900. The impossible has happened at the eleventh hour. Around us those hoarse-throated trumpets have been ringing out stentoriously all day. How blood-curdling they sounded! Calling fiercely and insistently to one another, this barbaric cease-fire of brass trumpets has grown to such a blood-curdling roar that attention had to be paid, and gradually but surely the rifles have been all stilled until complete and absolute silence surrounds us. At last diplomacy in the far-away outer world has made itself heard, and we who are placed in the very centre of this Middle Kingdom of China, being parleyed with by the responsible Chinese Government. It has...
