The latest novel from the No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey.
Left penniless after her parents' deaths, Kelsey Langton must now take responsibility of her younger sister Jean. But when circumstances and human frailty conspire to leave them homeless as well, Kelsey is forced to resort to drastic measures.
Only by allowing herself to be sold at auction can she rescue her sister's future - and so Kelsey enters the infamous House of Eros, resigned to becoming the plaything of some well-heeled gentleman.
Lord Derek Malory is the highest bidder for Kelsey's charms - a dashing rake from a family of charming London rogues who draws the sensuous dark-haired maiden into a world of unparalleled pleasures and dangerous rivalries. But Kelsey must scrupulously guard the secret of her highborn past - even as her grace, wit, spirit and beauty entice her new 'master' to renounce his scandalous ways...and take a chance on true love, the most perilous and rewarding gamble of all.
