With her critically acclaimed romances Enchanted and Portrait of Dreams, Victoria Malvey showcased her incomparable gift for storytelling. Now, in a tale filled with surprising twists, she reveals the scandalous adventures of a lord and lady who risk everything for passion in elegant Regency England.

Rosaleen Fleming is a bright flame, thoughtless of her reputation, and heedless of propriety. Since society considers her morally suspect because of her mother's youthful indiscretions, she plans to live up to everyone's worst expectations, even if it costs her the chance of a respectable marriage. That is, until she meets Lucien St. Cyr, Earl of Berwyn, who directs Rosaleen down the virtuous path to becoming a lady -- and sparks within her unexpected desires.

Then Lucien learns that he is the heir to a hidden, shocking legacy. Convinced he is doomed, he embarks on a rake's progress that puts him far beyond the pale for the respectable Rosaleen. But a last, desperate attempt to reach the kind man she once adored places Rosaleen in mortal danger. She has received an ominous card bearing the word "temptress" -- the same note that has marked a string of murders of notorious women, the mistresses of powerful gentlemen. Now Lucien realizes that to protect his beloved, he must hazard everything ... including his heart.
