Betrayal, temptation and an impossible love.

The final book in the Unmarriageable series...

Some suspect that Lily Villin is the true heart of the Hart Inn, a lucky house where love always seems to blossom, whatever the obstacles. But Lily has another secret. She is in love with an enigmatic nobleman, and no luck in the world can make such a marriage possible.

Randolph, Lord Torbridge, is a man of many secrets, in pursuit of a well-born traitor. But his visits to the Hart have increasingly less to do with his vital work than with the innkeeper's beautiful daughter—until he discovers her gift for mimicry and enrolls her in a dangerous masquerade to unmask the enemy.

Being with her brings temptations he struggles to resist, for he will not ruin her, and he cannot marry so far beneath his rank.

For once, it is not Lily's talents, but his own, which are needed for this love to blossom—along with a little luck and ingenuity.


Lilly Villin is the daughter of an innkeeper.  The Hart Inn is well known in some circles and has a reputation as a lucky place.  Several unusual couples have found love there.  
The patrons come from all walks of life.  
One regular is Randolf Merrick, Viscount Torbridge.  He secretly works for the Crown and is trying to catch a traitor.  Coming to The Hart has always brought him peace.  Or is it just the lovely Lily?? 
An idea comes to him that maybe she can help him with his task.  
This is lots of fun and a great adventure for our heroine.  There are lots of fabulous characters , some of whom you will have met in previous books.  The unexpected happens a lot.  
Great fun.


Mary Lancaster's first love was historical fiction. Since then she has grown to love coffee, chocolate, red wine and black and white films - simultaneously where possible. She hates housework.

As a direct consequence of the first love, she studied history at St. Andrews University, after which she worked variously as editorial assistant, researcher and librarian. Although she has always written stories for her own entertainment, she began to make serious efforts toward publication in order to distract herself from a job she disliked. She now writes full time at her seaside home in Scotland, which she shares with her husband and three children.
