Still tied to his desk in the Intelligence Office by new Royalist conspiracies, Colonel Eden Maxwell has become increasingly disenchanted. Then a brick hurled through the window of a small workshop begins an unexpected chain of events. After all, who would want to hurt Lydia Neville – a young widow, giving self-respect back to maimed war veterans? But when the assaults in Duck Lane threaten some of Eden’s former troopers, finding the culprit becomes a personal crusade.
Lydia finds Colonel Maxwell annoying and, learning that he’d arrested her brother in connection with the Ship Tavern Plot, she also mistrusts his motives. On the other hand, she plainly needs his help … and has difficulty resisting his smile.
Between plots to assassinate Cromwell, a rising in Scotland, reckless Cavaliers lurking around every corner and a failing government, Lords of Misrule is set against a time of national discontent. But against all the odds, Eden and Lydia find danger and love in equal measure.
