Salvatore Tremayne has lived with a burning hatred toward the father who denied him his birthright, and the brother who received all the glory. Raised in one of London’s most infamous brothels, Salvatore and his partner Nicolette have climbed from struggling musicians to London’s most sought-after entertainers. But even success can not satisfy the vengeance Salvatore craves toward his dead father and his heir, the Earl of Kedgwick.
When an opportunity arises to play at Salvatore’s brother’s engagement party, Nicolette hatches a plan to seduce the earl and convince him not to marry the Duke of Durham’s daughter. The scandal would muddy the Kedgwick name and deny the earl a rich dowry, but more importantly–give Salvatore the satisfaction he’s always yearned for.
Little does Salvatore know that Nicolette has been in love with him for years. All of that changes with one night of passion. Now Salvatore is questioning what is more important to him—revenge, or the love of the woman he might lose…to the very man he hates most of all
