Maria, Lady Winter, lives a life subject
to her stepfather, Lord Welton’s, whims. She has been forced
to endure things that would have broken a lesser woman, but
Maria will do anything he asks to ensure the safety of her
sister, whom Welton holds hostage. The latest scheme Welton
has hatched involves finding information about a notorious
criminal, Christopher St. John, for blackmail. However, this
last “mission” Lord Welton has charged her with might cost her
more than she is prepared to give.
The agents of the crown have finally
trapped Christopher St. John, but St. John will be granted a
pardon in exchange for helping to apprehend another criminal.
However, when St. John learns his target is the infamous Lady
Winter the rules of the game change. Now, he needs to
investigate Lady Winter, her propensity for widowhood, and
turn all evidence over to the crown. He never expected that
involvement with Lady Winter would change his life, but will
both of them survive?
