|Sinner. Villain. Ruthless.These are wicked names the Prince of Envy welcomes. They remind him what he isn't: a saint. And when a cryptic note arrives, signaling the beginning of a deadly game, he knows he'll be called much worse before it ends. Riddles, hexed objects, anonymous players, nothing will stand in his way. With a powerful artifact and his own future at stake, Envy is determined to win, though none of his meticulous plans prepare him for her, the frustrating artist who ignites his sin--and passion--like no other... Talented. Darling. Liar. The trouble with scoundrels and blackguards is that they haven't a modicum of honor, a fact Miss Camilla Antonius learns after one desperate mistake allows notorious rake--and satire sheet legend--Lord Phillip Vexley to blackmail her. And now it seems Vexley isn't the only scoundrel interested in securing her unique talents as a painter. To avoid Vexley's clutches and a ruinous scandal, Camilla is forced to enter a devil's bargain with Waverly Green's newest arrival, enigmatic Lord Ashford 'Syn' Synton, little expecting his game will awaken her true nature . . . Together, Envy and Camilla must embark on a perilous journey through the Shifting Isles--from glittering demon courts to the sultry vampire realm, and encounters with exiled Fae--while trying to avoid the most dangerous trap of all: falling in love.
