London is said to be the glittering jewel of society, a world unto itself — but to Julia Elliston it is a city of shadows. Her life is swiftly dissolving into scandal. And in Victorian society, even a whisper of scandal — substantiated or not — can be the death of a young woman’s reputation.

Now under the watchful eye of Lord Roy Pierson, one of most influential men in England, Julia begrudgingly accepts his protection. But Chance Macy’s power is far-reaching as well, and he is eager to assert his claim over her.
Thrust into society as the Emerald Heiress, Julia is the toast of London, a celebrated curiosity. But in reality she’s trapped between the clutches of two powerful men.

Aided only by a gentleman whose intentions she prays she can trust, Julia must finally take control of her own fate — but outwitting one’s foe rarely goes according to plan.
