The world thinks he is a paragon. A saint, by Zeus. If
only they knew!
Vergil Duclairc is a man used to getting his way. As the
newly appointed guardian and trustee of Miss Bianca
Kenwood, he is determined to find her and bring her back
to live with his family. The last thing he expects is to
find his errant ward scandalously costumed and employed as
a theatrical singer. He is even less prepared for the
relentless attraction he feels for her, a desire that he
cannot pursue lest it unmask secrets that he must hide,
and unravel plans laid long ago.
Bianca has no interest in giving up her independence, but
there is something compelling about this handsome and
brooding viscount who seems to assume he owns her and her
inheritance. She soon learns that Vergil is a man of
secrets and sensuality, and that she is not immune to his
power. Suddenly, in a moment that would change everything,
their desire ignites and throws them into a scandalous
passion, and into a world of dangerous intrigue.
