Destiny calls them. Duty binds them. Her heart yearned for a purpose that would shake the boredom away from her mundane life at Bridgerton. After her father returns home married to Lady Caterina, it only gets worse by the moment. A mysterious amulet makes her suspicious of her stepmother's intent, so much so that she finds herself spending her days spying on her. If Brieanna had known that following her new stepmother to her secret rendezvous would lead to a deadly werewolf bite, perhaps she would have thought twice about dealing with the deadly viper. When she unexpectedly survives, destiny continues to lead her down the winding road to a life covered in powerful secrets that are hers alone to bear. Lord Kent wanted nothing more than to bring an end to the madness that surrounded him. After losing his family to maniacal attacks from the Lair, he would go to any lengths to bring them down, even if it meant joining forces with the Lair to uncover their deadly secrets. When he was tasked by Lord Kensington to marry Lady Brieanna, Lord Kent had his reservations, but he could not deny his command. As a double agent working for Madigan's Army, he had to protect his cover at all costs.
