A woman compelled. A man obsessed. A love that defies king and country.
In the glittering world of Regency England, Anne Wilder plays a dangerous game. A widowed lady by day, by night she becomes a masked thief preying on society’s elite. She roves high above London’s black rooftops, compelled by phantoms from her past to take ever greater risks. Until her restless spirit leads her into Colonel Jack Seward’s trap…where seduction may be her only way out.
She plays him for a fool, taking advantage of his hungry response to escape from his clutches. But as Jack hunts for the thief, his heart falls captive to a self-possessed widow. Torn between illicit passion and tender love, Jack is duty-bound to capture the audacious criminal, even if it means ripping society apart to do so. Now, he stalks her through the town, never realizing the lovely widow who captured his heart is the same woman who roused his most violent passions.
