A hundred years has passed since the bitter rivalry between the St. Claires and the Huntingtons began. But in London, the feud goes on . . .
Lily St. Claire will do anything for the family that saved her from the streets. With their support, the young widow has become the hostess of The Devil’s Fancy, London’s most exclusive gaming den. She’s determined to restore the St. Claire family fortune, lost a century before to the despised Huntington clan. But a ghost from her past may be her ultimate undoing . . .
Lord Aidan Huntington is handsome and wealthy, with a taste for adventure and a reputation for wickedness. A gambler and a rake, Aidan can’t resist a seductive woman with secrets – but one naughty night with Lily leaves him wanting more. As Lily is drawn into London’s dark underworld by an old enemy, Aidan will risk everything to save the woman who has awakened his deepest desires.
Publishers Weekly: In this intriguing first St. Claire Regency romance, McKee (Duchess of Sin) introduces a delightfully down-to-earth heroine. Lily was adopted into the talented and handsome middle-class St. Claires, and she has always felt like an outsider. When Lily realizes that a long-ago night of compassion and connection was with none other than Aidan Huntington, a prominent member of the family whom the St. Claires blame for their fall from high society, she is determined to put an end to her secret longings. Aidan, however, can’t resist pursuing her. They indulge in an overabundance of sex, some at the most unlikely times, and continue to yearn for each other when apart. When an old enemy threatens Lily and her newfound family, she and the St. Claires learn just what kind of man Aiden is. Readers will cheer Lily in her quest for happiness, and look forward to the sequels
