Vivienne Taylor has finally won her family's approval by getting engaged to the wealthy John Vandergrift. She is determined to uphold her fiance's rigid Victorian ideal of womanhood. But when her beloved aunt gets enmeshed in a vicious blackmail scheme, she can only turn to her childhood hero, the notorious rake and adventurer Viscount Dashiell. Soon the two become pawns in a wicked game of art theft and revenge, forcing them to acknowledge their most secret and precious dream—a life together.
