An expert in antiquities, Lady Aandra della Giamatti arrives in Bath to excavate newly discovered Roman ruins—only to find herself caught in a web of evil intrigue by a blackmailer threatening to expose her scandalous past. The one man who can help her is Lord James "Black Jack" Pierson, a fellow member of the expedition and a sinfully handsome rogue whose tempting presence ignites a different sort of danger.
Jack has clashed with Aandra in the past, so when she suddenly surrenders her body he can't help being suspicious. Is she a scheming temptress? Or is she truly a lady in trouble? As desire and deceptions swirl around them, Aandra and Jack must find a way to win each other's trust.
For if they don't work together to uncover a shocking truth, their enemy—and their own simmering passions—may destroy them and everything they cherish.
