Back cover copy

Against the glamorous backdrop of Victorian high society, Liz Carlyle paints a dramatic tale of dangerous desire, the first in her sizzling new trilogy.

All Grace Gauthier ever wanted was the security of a good marriage, family, and home. Instead, despised by her aristocratic father's family because of her mother's foreign birth, she's taken a "safe" position as a governess. Now, unprotected and alone in London, accused of the shocking murder of her employer, she has no one to turn to except the mysterious--and possibly dangerous--Lord Ruthveyn.

A dark-eyed Lucifer, Ruthveyn guards his secrets carefully. His shadowed past is a source of pain and rumors--only whispered. Grace's plight--which echoes his own--moves him, as does her quiet beauty. Ruthveyn is determined to save Grace by unmasking a killer. But his growing passion places his own heart at risk and threatens to expose his dark gifts to the world.

Liz Carlyle weaves passion and intrigue with a master's touch. -- Karen Robards "The romance sizzles, its unpredictability propelling this compelx story far beyon dits contemporaries." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "With its exceptionally rich characterization, an engaging plot that gracefully pairs danger and desire, and an intriguing touch of the paranormal, Carlyle's latest stylishly written, lusciously sensual Regency historical romance is supremely satisfying." -- Booklist (starred review)
