It’s 1860 and Angelica Aldrich has traveled to exotic Hong Kong, a land where the customary rules of Victorian society don’t always apply. Recently orphaned, the young and impressionable American planned on living with her brother, David, and his young wife. What she hadn’t planned on, was sharing the house with the infamous Viscount St. Alban.
St. Alban is David’s business partner, but he’s also a notorious rogue. The handsome Viscount may seem to have only a few close friends, but as Angelica discovers, he has a number of female companions that are more than willing and unseemingly wanton.
Although Angelica finds St. Alban’s behavior scandalous, she’s as intrigued by him as he is captivated by her. Angelica awakens something within St. Alban and as their feelings for one another grow, a bond is forged and secrets are inadvertently revealed—secrets that could put Angelica in the path of danger.
