On a scorching August day in 1757 when he was eight years old, Sebastian Audley’s life changed. And though he did not know it, the change would last for the next thirteen years.
Mr Audley left university with an Honours degree in Law, a superior ability at the chessboard … and A Plan.
The list of things he did not have was much longer.
He didn’t quit Cambridge with a host of happy memories or a coterie of firm and lasting friends; he’d never drunk himself witless nor gambled away a term’s allowance at cards. He hadn’t participated in any of the hilarious pranks beloved of undergraduates everywhere and he hadn’t visited a brothel; in fact, though he’d sooner his eyes were picked out by crows than admit it, he’d never even kissed a girl.
In short, Sebastian had spent three years acquiring a particularly fine education … and nothing else whatsoever.
The Plan, however, was designed to change all that.

Sebastian Audley has spent years setting every city in Europe by the ears – so the rumour that he is finally returning to London is the hottest gossip of the Season.
In Cassandra Delahaye’s opinion, love affairs and duels, coupled with a name for never refusing even the most death-defying wager, suggest that Mr Audley is short of a brain cell or two.
As for Sebastian, he had known that living down his wild past in a society with an insatiable appetite for scandal would be difficult; what he hadn’t expected was to find himself the target of a former lover’s dangerous obsession.
