Lady Sophia Harding: beautiful, blond, and...capable of murder? That's what Lord Camden Grey intends to find out. It is Camden's duty to uphold the laws of the land.

But I was hoping you could tell me. Did you hire them?” Sophia rested her hand briefly on the back of a chair, using it to keep herself upright. He didn’t know, then. She still had a chance to keep him from finding out. “No. I believe I already made that clear. I’m sorry I cannot be of more help.”
