Lady Isabella St. Just is shocked to learn the identity of the daring champion who comes to her aid — for the man who rescues her from desperate felons is none other than Alec Tyron, the notorious king of London’s underworld. Now she is beholden to an outlaw who is respected and feared throughout the city and stunned by her own intense desire for this dark man of mystery.
Fate has united these strangers from opposite lives — the beautiful aristocrat and the brazen criminal outlaw. And now that the flame has been lit, no power on Earth will quench the fire of their passion…or destroy a love that society cannot allow.
When beautiful aristocrat Lady Isabella St. Just first sets eyes on handsome Alec Tyron, he is holding her at gunpoint. Despite her fear of him, the tawny-haired, golden-eyed king of the London underworld saves her from the criminals who abducted her, only to fall victim to a gunshot wound himself. Thrown together in the seedy underbelly of glittering London, they are wary of each other from the start. Shy, sheltered Isabella has never met a man like Alec, but the street-tough crime boss ignites her passion in a way that she had never even imagined was possible. Their love is something that society cannot allow – but no matter the cost its blazing heat just won’t be denied.
