In the captivating Satisfaction, USA Today bestselling author Thea Devine introduced the Galliard brothers—men who like their pleasures and take them as they come. Now, meet Kyger Galliard, a man who has suppressed every need and desire in service of his family. Finally free to immerse himself in all the seductions of a city steeped in sin, there isn't a temptation he won't try, a decency he won't flout, or a woman he won't use...until he meets Angilee...


Angilee Rosslyn, Southern American debutante, has been brought to London by her ruthless father to make a profitable marriage to the Viscount Wroth. Titled though he may be, the Viscount is a pig. Desperate for a way out of the marriage, the headstrong Angilee hits on a brilliant solution: she will pay to be deflowered. And who better to be the agent of her downfall than the notorious Kyger Galliard?


Want. Need. Desire. It's all the same thing to Kyger, spending his nights drowning in sex and sin. He's instantly intrigues by Angilee—by hr beauty, her determination, her body...One night of white-hot passion together only whets his appetite, and soon he's arranging for clandestine meetings in the midst of London's social whirl, falling deeper under her spell, even as he realizes the danger they are in...


Now, in a world of smoke and mirrors, where secret rooms hold bold pleasures no good man should witness, Kyger must walk a tightrope to discover who is an enemy, who is an ally, and who really is involved in the diabolical secret society he has sworn to destroy. But his best chance to accomplish his mission hinges on his using the sensual and luscious Angilee—a woman he'd do anything to protect—as his unwitting pawn...

Thea Devine's Bio

She’s the author whose books defined erotic historical romance. Romantic Times calls her “The Queen of Erotic Romance,” Affaire de Coeur: “… the divine mistress of sensual writing …” She’s Thea Devine (yes, it’s her real name), and she’s the author of 18 steamy historical romances (with three more to come), as well as contributing novellas to Kensington Books’ USA Today best-selling erotic historical romance anthologies, CAPTIVATED, FASCINATED, and TAKEN BY SURPRISE. She’s also written a handful of sexy contemporary romantic novellas for Kensington and Leisure Books, and she made her debut in full-length contemporary romance in 1999 with NIGHT MOVES, for Harlequin Temptation “Blaze”. She lives and works in Connecticut (and summers in Maine), but more to the point, she really lives that secret life readers sometimes think she does: for the past twenty years, she’s also been a professional manuscript reader. She was married to John and after 50 years of love and companionship, her husband passed away in December 2016, and has two grown sons, Michael and Thomas; and two sister felines, Charlotte and Emily Bronte Cat; and two dogs: mini-doxie Midgie, who recently joined the family; and the headstrong, stubborn and wilful black lab, Maggie, who has, Thea says, all the qualities of a good heroine.
