The glitter and glamour of London Society holds little appeal for the reclusive Viscount Davenport. But when he receives an urgent call to the family estate, little does he know he is about to be drawn into a deadly mystery that will force him to confront demons from the past. The theft of an ancient family heirloom -- rumored to carry a strange curse -- and the disappearance of his younger brother raise frightening questions. His hunt for answers takes him back to Town -- and a fiery encounter with an old acquaintance who may be his only hope for discovering the truth.
Lady Olivia Marquand, the sultry, savvy owner of a spice trading company, knows her way around the shadowy world of clandestine commerce, so Davenport has no choice but to ask for her help, no matter that sparks fly between them. As the clues lead them from the sparkling ballrooms of Mayfair to the smoky gaming hells of St. Giles, they find themselves fighting the deadly wiles of a cunning adversary -- and their own simmering attraction, which threatens to consume them in a flare of flames....
