From New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens comes a breathtaking novel of passion and mystery
The Duke of St. Ives, known to those closest to him as Devil Cynster, comes from one of England's most powerful families, but even a dynasty as respected as the Cynsters has its skeletons. When the duke's young cousin is found murdered, Devil is determined to uncover the killer . . . even if it means disgracing a member of his own blood.
Matters aren't helped by the distracting presence of Honoria Wetherby. She may be "e;only"e; a governess, but Devil has never met a woman like her before--one with brains, beauty, and a fearless desire to help him in his quest for justice. Together, they embark on an adventure--one of danger, love, and passion--a journey that just might cost them their lives.
