In every adventure, there must be passion.... Lady Jessica Carville wants nothing to do with men after having her heart betrayed. Despite society's disapproval, she has found fulfillment and success as a dealer of rare antiquities for Christie's auction house in London. The last thing she needs is for the scoundrel who once cast her aside to rear his handsome head.
Despite her best efforts, Lord Hugo Duran's sudden return from India piques Jessica's curiosity -- as does his tempting offer. He needs her expertise on a quest to locate a priceless artifact that is rumored to have been smuggled into England -- a quest full of daring adventure, dangerous intrigue, and unbridled passion.
