Passion has never been so dangerous.
Two years later, Lilias and Angelstone lock eyes in a crowded ballroom and the memory returns in an exhilarating rush.

When someone from the shadows of their past proves a dire threat to their lives, passion might not be enough to save them.
As headstrong as she is beautiful, Lady Cassandra Vernham defied convention when she refused to marry the man who had compromised her. Now, estranged from her family, Cassandra struggles to make ends meet. A recent auction of her jewels has brought her a modicum of relief, but one of the most valuable lots was never paid for by the highest bidder: handsome, rakish Viscount Ambury. Cassandra needs that money badly, and not to buy a new hat.
Ambury has only to look at Cassandra to begin imagining her in his bedandhellip; He has not settled that outstanding debt for a reason.

But nothing is as it seemsandhellip;
As the seductive lord and the scandalous beauty are drawn together, the passion that flares between them will illuminate shocking secrets that will change both their lives foreverandhellip;
