She had no name but...Miranda.
Raised in a notorious brothel without family or heritage, she knew only endless days of drudgery as a servant, shrinking from the life that would one day be forced upon her by those to whom she owed her daily existence.
She had no hope until...James.
The man who, with skill and tenderness, showed her what her future could be. He fulfilled her most ardent desires, explored with her the depths of love possible between a man and a woman — and betrayed her trust.
She feared the future without...her identity.
Alone, wounded, and armed with mysterious clues to her family, she begins an epic journey through Victorian London to find the answers she seeks—all the while hiding her past and shunning love and marriage. She wonders if she will ever again meet the man who spoke to her heart. And if she did, would it change the course of her destiny...and his?
