Christian 'Kit' Satton, Viscount Palmer, is society's most dashing war hero. But Kit's easy smiles hide a dark secret: he is haunted by a madman's vow to destroy anyone he loves. When his hunt for the enemy leads to Everleigh's Auction Rooms, he compels Lilah to help him. But one tempting touch may be their undoing - for what Kit needs threatens all Lilah holds dear, and losing her may destroy Kit.
