Let me assure you that I will not be manipulated by any feminine wiles into offering you another penny for such a dilapidated piece of property.—Sebastian Cavanaugh

After conventional means fail, Sebastian, Marquess of St. Just, takes reckless measures to secure that crumbling monstrosity known as Trembledown—a haven for local smugglers and moonlighting spies.
