Trey Hawthorne, Duke of Salterdon, has long had a black reputation. Then he found the love of his life in beautiful, innocent Maria Ashton and everything changed.
But Maria was taken from him, and his life has grown ever more debauched and pointless.
Now fate offers him a second chance with Maria. But it won't be an easy one. She has spent the lost years locked away in a mad house, starved, abused, living in filth. She is now quite mad and she hates him with every fiber of her being.
