From the grandeur of regency Mayfair to the dark danger of London's East End, Liz Carlyle sweeps you away with a powerful story of a love born against all odds, as an honorable young widow stands fast against the cynical rogue who seems determined to consume her, heart and soul. A Woman of Virtue In the lonely months since her husband's death, Cecilia Lorimer has hidden her emptiness

By devoting herself to a charity mission for the unfortunate women of London's slums. But when the dashing Lord Delacourt takes control, she feels an uncharacteristic urge to flee.

When treachery closes in, only he knows how to guard Cecilia from the consequences of her own principles.
