The Industrial Revolution is underway and England has never been so modern or progressive. Blaire Mitchell, a good woman in a desperate situation, is faced with an age-old dilemma. With no skills, no money, and no power, she\'s the only one left who can save her family farm and her brother. In order to succeed she must clear the enormous debts left behind by her parents. Determined to do whatever it takes and to make any sacrifice, Blaire strikes a deal that will change her life forever. Gabriel Wynters is the notorious Fox, a gambling hall owner who is as ruthless as he is clever. Gabriel strikes a deal with the lovely and innocent Blaire, her virtue and one night in his bed in exchange for the money she so badly needs. But Blaire offers more than her body. With her, he experiences a closeness and intimacy unlike ever before. Although he thought one taste would be enough for him, Blaire gets under his skin and manages to tug on his heart. The Fox is a story about a love that is boundless, a love that is consuming. Gabriel and Blaire start out as partners and lovers in a unique arrangement. But they soon grow to realize that what they truly desire is to belong to one another utterly, completely, and in every way.
