Lucy Drake's mastery of Morse code has made her a valuable asset to the American news agencies as a telegrapher. But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk. Newly arrived from London, Colin is talented, handsome, and insufferably charming. Despite their rivalry, Lucy realizes Colin's connections could be just what her family needs to turn the tide of their long legal battle over the fortune they were swindled out of forty years ago. When she negotiates an unlikely alliance with him, neither of them realizes how far the web of treachery they're wading into will take them.

This started out well and had potential. The romance became convoluted with Lucy and Nick’s family matters and Colin’s desire to repair Whitefriars (whatever happened with Colin’s sister, by the way?). I read 3/4 of the way through with interest, but then started skimming until the final chapter. It seemed to drone on with no important info added.
I liked the characters. I liked the comparison of those with money and their shallow ways against those who work hard and have more noble intentions. The character development was good, and the book was written well. Much of it could have been eliminated and more straightforward.
