In the glittering world of Regency England, Anne Wilder plays a dangerous game. A widowed lady by day, by night she became a masked thief preying on society's elite. She roves high above London's black rooftops, compelled by phantoms from her past to take ever greater risks. Until her restless spirit led her into Colonel Jack Seward's trap, where seduction is the only way out. Ann plays him for a fool, taking advantage of his hungry response to escape from his clutches. But as Jack hunts for his thief, his heart falls captive to a self-possessed widow. Torn between illicit passion and tender love, Jack is duty-bound to capture the audacious criminal, even if it means ripping society apart to do so.
