London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic con-nections, and money, he’s never had to work. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and es-tates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he strug-gles to face. But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, pos-sessing little more than a dangerous and trouble some past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her?
