If you had to decide between passion and contentment, which would you choose?

In Victorian New York City, a young woman finds herself torn between two men. The respectable choice, Michael Bayley, is such an appropriate suitor, and when she is with him, she is a better woman. He is nothing like her lover, who is seductive and thrillingly cruel, freeing her to say and do the most wicked things. So when both men ask for her hand in marriage, she knows her decision will define who she is and determine who she will become.

Will she choose the man who offers her an upstanding life in the approving company of New York society? Or will she choose the man who fills her with uncontrollable passion? This is a powerful coming-of-age tale filled with desire and indecision, where the choice of who to marry is the most important choice of all.
