After years dedicated to business, lawyer Meredith Sinclair is having the wildest ride of her life. James Hamilton is everything she respects, admires, and desires in a man. So when James makes her the most indecent proposition she's ever heard, Meredith can't resist. That night, as he sends shocks of desire through Meredith's naked body with a feather she's treasured all her life, Meredith is overcome with something else: an unknown and consuming fear.
Then come the visions of Victorian England, of herself being sold to strangers for their sexual desires. Of James, a lord bound by duty. And of both of them-star-crossed lovers who must make amends with a strange and tumultuous past if they can ever hope for a future together.
