Three intrepid princesses find themselves targets in a deadly plot against the crown--until their uncle devises a brilliant plan to keep them safe...
England, 1888. Quiet and scholarly Princess Emilie has always avoided adventure, until she's forced to disguise herself as a tutor in the household of the imposing Duke of Ashland, a former soldier disfigured in battle and abandoned by his wife. When chance draws her into a secret liaison with the duke, Emilie can't resist the opportunity to learn what lies behind his forbidding mask, and find out what adventure really means...
The duke never imagines that his son's tutor and his mysterious golden-haired beauty are one and the same. But when the true identity of his lover is laid bare, Ashland must face the demons in his past in order to safeguard both his lady--and his heart.

Review by Library Journal (2013-06-14)

Three princesses from the German principality of Holstein-Schweinwald-Huhnhof are forced to flee to England following the murders of their father, the prince, and the husband of Luisa, the eldest sister and heir. They arrive at the London residence of their uncle the Duke of Olympia and a plan is hatched to keep the young women safe while discovering who is behind the assassinations. Disguised as a young man, Emilie is sent to the Yorkshire estate of the reclusive Duke of Ashland to serve as tutor to his 16-year-old son, Freddie.

The duke was severely maimed and disfigured during the campaign in Afghanistan in the 1870's, and his wife left him. Now, once a month, the duke is entertained by a female in a room at the Ashland Spa Hotel. Emilie manages well as tutor Tobias Grimsby, yet at the hotel dressed as herself, Emilie is mistaken for the woman trysting with the duke and finds herself in a room, stripped to her chemise, with Ashland in a chair while she reads to him.

Verdict: Emilie, "who, beneath her quiet and dutiful exterior, craved adventure", finds more than adventure with a man who suffered greatly for his country and now thinks he knows a semblance of peace with a seductive young woman. Featuring astute writing and charm, this work from Gray (A Duke Never Yields) sets off a new series with some serious heat.
