Secrets and lies are dangerous in the game of love, and the truth always comes at a price.
Former spy William Saunders' world is turned upside down the day he rescues missionary worker Hattie Wright from the deep blue waters off the coast of Gibraltar.
On the sea voyage back to London, the couple is forced to share a cramped cabin. Desire, and passion, soon ignite between them.
While Hattie views the steamy affair as little more than a brief respite before she goes back to her mission among the poor and vulnerable in the slums of London, William sees things very differently. His cold, empty heart is once more filled with the warmth of love.
After rejecting his offer of marriage, Hattie disappears into the dark underworld of the London rookeries. What quickly follows is a cat and mouse game between the two former lovers, with neither prepared to yield an inch.
Hattie unwittingly makes a powerful enemy in one of the vile criminal gangs. And when she goes missing, William is finally forced to confront the truth of his own past. But will it be enough to save the woman he loves?
