Forget the Horrors. Remember...me.
A shivering young woman leans against a lamppost on the most notorious street of ill repute in all London. For Asher Colborne, Baron of Wenlock, this is a haunting vision of beauty and wretchedness. He is shocked to discover the dressed-in-rags creature is none other than Chastity Armitage, who had captured his heart more than two years past.
Desperate for food and lodging money for her siblings, Chastity is forced to take to the streets. She never expected a tall, handsome man to appear as if from mist and change her life forever. A choice is before her: continue down the path of never-ending poverty or become the baron's mistress.
Though they are determined that the arrangement will remain an emotionless business transaction, the attraction between them is scorching. Many barriers and obstacles lay in Chastity and Ash's path. For the baron and the mistress, embracing true love could be the most difficult impediment they face.
