A year later in London, Helena Pryce applies for the job of personal secretary to Derek, an earl because she feels he will not reject a candidate due to gender as the lord grew up in a home of females. He offers her a deal if she purchases a castle for him, he will hire her. Using her connections, Helena succeeds. Adhering to his agreement, Derek hires Helena, but is also curious about her. As he investigates his new personal secretary, he and she fall in love. However, his inquiries into Helena's life lead him to the man who broke his hand, her father, on the Asian subcontinent and to the woman from his past that he once believed he loved and one day would marry. Derek must decide between vengeance and love.

SILVER LION, Lynn Kerstan's third and final feline tale (see THE GOLDEN LEOPARD and HEART OF THE TIGER) is a terrific historical romance starring strong lead protagonists and a powerful support cast including return engagements. The story line has plenty of action, but is more of a deep character study as the heroine redeems the hero filling him with love, hope and honor, traits he felt lost forever. As with the previous two graceful tales, this is a winner that will lead to sub-genre fans hoping for more early nineteenth century cat lives to come.
