Della Arnell kept handsome, self-assured men like Colin Delaney at a cool distance. Yet even as she condemned the heir to the Delaney fortune, she was compelled to follow him through an icy void…into the past. On a quest to uncover who had murdered his grandfather, Colin never imagined he'd find the answer in an 1880s bordello with his nemesis, Della, by his side. But caught up in a world of nefarious pleasures and well-guarded secrets, they soon formed a connection bound by unbridled passion. Together they hunted for clues to an age-old mystery, all the while praying the truth would set them free. Free to return to the present, and free from the Delaney legacy that damned all who dared to love.
