A prequel to the darkest London series

After a fire consumes the Ellis family fortune, the  beautiful and resourceful Miranda finds herself faced with an impossible  dilemma: enter a life of petty crime or watch her family succumb to  poverty.  But once her fiancée learns of  her descent into danger–and of the strange, new powers she’s discovered  –saving her family may come at the high price of her heart.

When his one chance for redemption is destroyed by corrupt  London antiquarian Hector Ellis, Lord Benjamin Archer vows to take what Ellis  values most—his daughter Miranda.     Forced to hide his face behind masks, Archer travels the  world hoping to escape the curse that plagues him so that he can finally claim  his prize.

But once Archer returns home to London, will it be revenge  he seeks? Or will the flame-haired beauty ignite new, undeniable desires?
