She is filled with wild passion… Jessamyn Lovell, the “Gypsy Violinist,” is the newest musical sensation among the ton, but she and her sister are caught in the grip of an unscrupulous uncle, who uses her performances as a cover for his crimes.
He has scoured the recklessness from his soul… The Earl of Silverton, Morgan Trevethwick, has spent ten years restoring his family’s reputation in the wake of scandal–and it has taken every ounce of his self control.
Together, they will be one another’s ruin… When danger looms, Jessa risks everything to seek Morgan’s help. He cannot refuse a woman in distress, though she threatens to overturn the future he has worked so hard to secure. Even worse, she relights a fire in his heart–one he had thought extinguished forever.
