With the gaslights' glow upon her chestnut hair, no woman ever looked lovier than American heiress Madeleine Malcom. Her fortune and dazzling beauty attracted many men. Yet she looked for just one -Teddy Malcom. The young rake had never satisfied her as a woman, but she had foolishly married him...and then had awakened one day to find him gone.
Now she sat across from British inquiry agent Devin Grant with her head held high. Not a quiver betrayed those cherry-red lips that Devin suddenly wanted to kiss. She was asking him to find her husband, but an unexpected magnetism was drawing them together in a much different quest. For when their search led to Paris, a sultry demimonde, and dangerous midnight streets, desire could sweep them down a road dark with secrets, stolen passions, and ultimately...raptuous love.
