Journey with acclaimed author Elizabeth Ann Michaels to the elegance and splendor of South Carolina, where civil was is about to divide a nation...and where a man and a woman are bound by a love as dangerous as it is irresistible...

But hidden among the silks and satins are dangerous secrets that will bring Laurel face to face with the man who can betray her - even as his seductive touch arouses shameless desire.
