In his earlier days, Cyprian Sloane was a less than reputable gentleman. He embraced the life of a rake, gambler, smuggler, even though some of those deeds were committed as a cover-up while spying for the crown during the war. Now, he wants respectability, not so much for himself, but to rub it in the face of a father who has always despised him. As he took steps to gain his rightful place in ton society he crossed paths with the caring, determined, and outspoken Miss Morgana Hart. Without choosing to, he became embroiled in Morgana's latest madcap scheme of turning four destitute young woman into `courtesans'. If discovered, any inroads he'd made for a successful entre into ton society and a suitable betrothal to a respectable but boring young woman would all be for naught. Sloane would have to make a decision as to whether retribution for the cruelty of his childhood was worth losing the remarkable woman he'd come to love.
