To mark her return to society more than a year and a half after the death of her husband, Juliet is invited to a ball at her friend’s house. But all she is met with are cold stares, and she ends up regretting that she came. A rumor has been going around that she killed her husband, and people are calling her the Black Widow behind her back! Then a young man calls out to her at the ball, taking her under his wing. He’s Sebastian St. Claire, the youngest son of a powerful noble family…so what would he want with her? Does he think that because she’s a widow, he can have whatever he wants from her?
