Lady Thea Debenham thinks her only problem is a stained ball gown, but in the deserted corridors of her home she meets Vile Viscount Darien; her life will never be the same. She has always been a perfect lady, which makes her perfect for Darien's purposes. He's determined to force his way into Society despite his own dubious reputation and the appalling one of his family. Thea is the perfect weapon, especially when she's the sister of a Rogue. After his time at Harrow school, he hates the Company of Rogues.
