Recently widowed and increasingly poor, Thea's been reduced to sharing her rented room with rodents and arguing over every morsel (the mice usually win). So when a friend suggests Thea consider a scandalous alliance, she cannot help but be intrigued…though given the lackluster nature of her tepid marriage, she doubts her ability to tempt—much less please—an experienced man.
