She's been living in the country with her alcoholic brother, bratty cousin and absentee father since then, but she's about to be thrown back into her London life, in more ways than expected. A fateful decision has her helping one of societies most daring rakes, Nathanial Blackmore, to escape the hangman's noose. Can she use her intelligence, logic and determination to prevent the death sentence that hangs above them both? She just might lose her heart on the way.
