Stung by a troubled marriage, then freed by the veil of widowhood, Lady Sophy Marlowe vows she will only wed again for love alone. But her penchant for being in the wrong place at the wrong time finds her accused of a crime she didn't commit, and then accepting the calculated proposal of Viscount Ives Harrington to save her neck from the gallows. For the once-committed bachelor, he finds the marriage of convenience a direct passage into intrigue and harrowing danger. As the two flee over land and sea from a world bent on destroying them, the fate they can hardly resist is rushing toward them, fulfilling the desire that burns between them. . .
