It’s all fun and games…until the love card is dealt.
Britt Lockhart is an ill-reputed Elite scoundrel, skilled at hustling. Cole and Laney Rose are wards of the tyrannical Progressive Legacy with a life of servitude ahead of them. But when Britt rescues Laney from a frightening attack, their two very different worlds collide and lifelong friendships are formed.
Or so they think.
Promises made are promises broken, resulting in a disastrous affair that nearly kills Laney and forces the three into hiding. There, they develop a grand scheme, sweeping them into the elevated echelons of the Legacy. As Lord Windsor and Lady Stasia Harrington, Britt and Laney rock the Elite with celebrity appearances and lavish parties. They live the high life, all the while collecting information from unsuspecting colleagues and using it to damage the government organization from deep within.
But all Laney wants is to live a quiet life with Britt far from the reaches of the Legacy.
Intrigue and danger increase with each mission, and before long, Laney finds herself questioning her loyalty and motives. A budding relationship with a handsome, powerful Legacy captain doesn’t help. Will she risk it all to earn the love of the enemy? Will she cast aside her feelings for Britt in the name of the cause? Or will she even survive long enough to see what her future holds?
Influenced by the classic tales, The Scarlet Pimpernel and The Count of Monte Cristo.
