Soldier turned solicitor Lord Merritt Rivers has dedicated his life to upholding the law. He patrols the streets faithfully, hoping to stop crimes before they happen. While hunting an escaped convict, he encounters a woman also hunting thieves. She's a delicious distraction—until he discovers that she's the criminal he's after. She's smart, challenging, and everything he finds attractive, but he can't trust her. Veronica Chase has hidden her past as a nobleman's daughter. She confessed to a crime to keep her adopted brother out of prison and now lives in London's underworld, trapped between worlds, belonging nowhere. Forming an uneasy alliance, Veronica and Merritt work together to protect innocent Londoners during the city's riots. Moving between her world and his, they grow closer to each other and to the mob's dangerous leaders. But their newfound trust won't be enough, not unless each faces their demons and asks what's worth saving—the lives they've chosen to lead or the love that leaves them yearning for more.
