Victorian society already believes she’s a scarlet woman. Why not become one?

Beatrice Weatherly’s reputation is in tatters. With scandalous photographs of her being scrutinized by the ton and her brother running them into debt, Beatrice’s only hope – a respectable marriage – is dashed. Then powerful, wealthy Edmund Ellsworth Richie offers an indecent proposal: for one month of hedonistic servitude he’ll pay off her brother’s debts.

But nothing can prepare Beatrice for the worst, for discovering that she enjoys her degradation and delights in the dark fantasies that Edmund has awakened. In fact, she’s fast becoming addicted to a life, and a man, who can never wholly be hers...
