Next up on Book Club: The Pretender by Celeste Bradley

She had a secret she'd do anything to hide.
Agatha Cunnington, headstrong beauty from the country, has come to London in search of her missing brother James. The only clue she has is a cryptic letter signed "The Griffin." Agatha decides to disguise herself as a respectable married woman so that she can go about the city unnoticed. But for her charade to work she needs a suitable "husband," preferably someone tall, elegant and rakish—Someone like Simon Rain.

He had a secret he'd do anything to hide.
Simon Rain is a member of the Liar's Club, a renegade group of rogues and thieves in the service of the Crown. When someone begins murdering members of the undercover cabal one by one, Simon is given the mission to bring in James Cunnington, one of his comrades who is suspected of betraying his brothers. Simon goes undercover and infiltrates the home of "Mrs." Agatha Applequist—who he believes is James's mistress. Before Simon knows what's happened, he finds himself irresistibly drawn to Agatha's soft, feminine charms—and he is tempted beyond reason to break the first rule of the Liar's Club: Never fall in love.

Thursday, Feb. 17, beginning at 6 a.m. EST!

Book Club Question to get people thinking for Thursday:
In the opening of THE PRETENDER, Agatha is very comfortable lying in order to control her own destiny. do you believe that "anything goes" when faced with an unfair situation? What would you have done in such an unequal society?
