Lady Camelia Marshall comes to London hoping to persuade brilliant inventor Simon Kent to design a pump that can remove the water flooding her archeological dig in South Africa.

Camelia's stunned to find that Simon's not only a brawny man in the prime of life (instead of a doddering old professor) but also disinterested in her business proposition. In turn, Simon also finds Camelia to be an intriguing mix of beauty, brains and brashness. Resolved to stay in London with his work and family, Simon gets a jolt when he grasps the seriousness of the danger plaguing Camelia. Shocked to find himself caring for her, Simon is soon drawn into a daring adventure of passion and intrigue - monkey, parrot, snake, African native and all.

This is a delicious romp, an exhilarating tale of adventure and romance. Camelia is enchanting in her commitment to her father's work and deep seated love of Africa. Her determination in the face of terrible odds wins over the reader's heart. Simon is an irresistible mix of scientific knowledge and charm, combining masculine virility and vulnerability. Their growing passion scorches the pages while their budding romance will pluck at readers' heartstrings. The comical ménage and hilarious antics of Camelia's animals provide a welcome relief to the ever-increasing aura of suspense.

In short, Every Whispered Word is an unconventional Victorian-era romance that entertains while it ensnares the reader.
