A novel by

 
 
A dissolute rake, a virtuous lady, a ruthless society beauty and a missing plantation owner with secrets - just another day in Georgian England...

1780

Wealthy Jamaican plantation owner Harry Carstairs has disappeared - and everyone wants to know where he is...

Celeste Rosington knows her place in society, and while she may not be overjoyed at her upcoming wedding to her detached cousin Raphael, she nonetheless hopes the marriage will be successful. When Raphael asks her for her help to save Harry, she agrees. But her decision costs her more than she knows...

Celeste's clandestine visit to Harry's home is witnessed, and her connection to Harry misconstrued. Harry's secrets put Celeste into more danger than even Raphael understands, and throws her into the path of the ruthless, cunning, beautiful Lady Busselton and the dissolute, dangerous Lord Peregrine.

Raphael is invested in keeping Harry alive. Lady Busselton is invested in keeping him quiet. Lord Peregrine is invested in anything that staves off boredom. And Celeste is becoming increasingly invested in Lord Peregrine. After all, what resistance does an innocent young woman have against something so deliciously wicked?
