Expected to marry within the family, the Woodrow sisters don't circulate among the ton. Getting their portrait painted in an artist's studio is a treat, especially when the artist is the handsome and notorious Stephen Mills. While Lady Samantha smiles and Lady Georgiana flirts, it's the introspective Lady Frederica Woodrow who is rapidly losing her heart.
With his career clouded by scandal, Stephen knows he must execute the Woodrow painting with the utmost propriety. But one of these lovely sisters is a "muse," exciting his passions and elevating his artistic talent in consequence.
When Stephen is wrongly accused of murder, and Frederica helps him escape arrest, Stephen not only learns his muse's identity, but that her allure is far more dangerous to him than the threat of the hangman's noose!
