England in 1753 is a dangerous place. King George II sits uneasily upon the throne, fearful of another Jacobite uprising, and many noblemen play on these fears in their quest for power. Among them is Guy Morellon—hated, feared, and almost unassailable. But when Madame Elinor de Sange returns to England, bent on revenge, Morellon finds himself pitted against a dangerous adversary. For Elinor has a ruby that holds the key to his destruction and that of other men who ruined her life 8 years earlier. Revenge, though, carries a high price and Elinor finds she is no longer the Lady of Stone. She must learn to trust and forgive—if bitterness does not destroy her first.
