Being sold to the Earl of Melton, a member of the Clan Stewart, cannot match the horror Helen Rivenall endured residing in her uncle’s house.

But as their web of lies grows, so does temptation and the knowldge that sensual pleasures and sin are often one in the same.
Haunted by a dark past and a secret he cannot reveal, Sebastian values control above all else–refusing to relinquish his heart to anyone. However, Helen might just possess the power to usurp his control as he succumbs to an obsession more powerful–love.
But when Helen is taken by a madman, it’s up to Sebastian to find her. Set against the backdrop of Jack the Ripper’s horrific murders, this sultry historical romance is the tale of two damaged souls, struggling to find each other despite the pain of their pasts.
