From the glittering mansions of the Astors and the Vanderbilts to the gas-lit streets of New York, this passionate novel by award-winning author Meagan McKinney brings together a desperate woman and a handsome stranger who could expose her scandalous secret
New York heiress Alana Van Alen has everything—beauty, wealth, and status. But she is living a lie. To protect her sister, she plays society’s game and attends dazzling balls and soirees—until a cunningly orchestrated act of revenge leaves her penniless and at the mercy of one of the city’s most notorious gentlemen.
Dubbed the Predator of Wall Street, Trevor Sheridan rose from abject poverty in Ireland to the pinnacle of power in Manhattan. Yet he’s still shunned by the city’s elite Four Hundred. Now he has parlayed his hunger for revenge into a scheme to destroy the rich and powerful. In the final phase of his plan, he will marry the pedigreed Alana Van Alen to gain the acceptance that has been denied to him for so long. But along the way, he makes a fatal misstep: He falls in love with her.
The romantic saga of the Van Alen sisters continues with Christal Van Alen’s story in Fair Is the Rose.
