The Book of Affairs had been opened!
And woe to the one who thinks they can control its power...
Miss Mildred Parker wants only one thing.
And… that is to save her family from poverty.
Now… she can do it because she has the most coveted book in England.
The Book of Affairs.
But she made a mistake when she decided to steal a small fortune from the most powerful man in England.
The Duke of Van Dero.
Milly's about to learn a valuable lesson.
That nothing is free.
Cassius Hayes, the Duke of Van Dero, has every intention of teaching sweet Milly that lesson. Nothing will please him— or her— more.
Yet while all seems well on the outside, the Duke of Van Dero's world is unlike any other.
He is a cold-blooded man who is not your average duke.
Soon Milly will find herself being dragged into a dark side of England she'd never known existed.
What happens when a woman falls in love with a villain?
Can love change a heart made of stone?
Or will the darkness have its way with them both?
