Euphemia Fortescue ran away from an arranged marriage ten years ago, and since, she has suffered the whims and trials of false friends and twisted lords. But since becoming a housemaid for Harcourt Sinclair, she has found some semblance of peace and purpose. Harcourt Sinclair has been planning his revenge for twenty years against those peers of society who took everything from him. But his single-mindedness will cost him, unless he can learn to trust his least expected saviour... Both live in the shadows, and know all too well the cruelty of those in power. The darkness in their hearts means they can never love - doesn't it? A tale of redemption, adventure, secrets, desire, and love in Regency London.
