Aria Whitney, the daughter of an antiquarian, has been exiled to London. But despite her father’s good intentions, Aria has no desire to remain in a world where everything about her is wrong. She wants the life she loves: one of dust-covered boots and freedom, not parasols and petticoats. Then Aria learns the encampment she was forced to leave was brutally attacked–and her father has vanished. Her search for answers leads her to the high society she spurns–where a thin strand of acceptance gives her a foothold to seek out the powerful men who stand to gain from her father’s disappearance. But fitting in has never been one of Aria’s strengths…
Adam Willoughby, the Earl of Merewood, killed a man to save his sister’s life –a secret his family has risked everything to keep. So when the beautiful, but trouble bound Miss Whitney forges a single-minded path in his direction, Adam finds himself torn between a consuming attraction and the need to warn her away. But Aria’s disregard of society’s rules and Adam’s not-so-strategic retreat entangle them in a scandal that awakens someone far more dangerous. If Aria and Adam are to survive, they must let go of their secrets and learn to trust–in each other.
Michael Ashton, the Duke of Ravensdale, is caught in two scandals, neither of which is his own doing. The first involves a woman (don’t they always), and the second…well, it also involves a woman and a large sum of stolen money. In order to save the reputation Michael has spent his life rebuilding, he must track down the widow of his presumed-dead cousin in order to charm…or seduce her missing husband’s whereabouts from her.
After being abandoned a mere hour after her wedding, Blythe Willoughby Ashton wonders how she could have been fooled by such a cad and still feels humiliated and betrayed a year later. Her husband wooed her, married her, took her money and left. When she learns of his death, she decides unceremoniously to go on with her life—without a man. So when Thomas’s cousin—a Duke, no less—shows up uninvited on her doorstep, looking more handsome and irresistible than any man should, Blythe instinctively doesn’t trust him nor does she want to like him. But her traitorous heart doesn’t seem to care. At the same time, Michael’s clear agenda gets quite blurry when the woman he believes an accomplice to his cousin’s schemes turns out to be the woman he can give his heart to…and the only one he can’t have.
