For a decade Devlin "Devil" Strathmore has run from his guilt, but he's spent the last two years investigating the fateful night of the fire that took his family away from him. He must examine every detail with the utmost finesse, for the prize is the one thing Devlin craves more than anything else in the world - peace. But, there can be no peace without answers. When he has the truth in his grasp, he'll wreak vengeance in an orgy of violence the likes of which has never been seen.
Elizabeth Carlile, caretaker to Devlin's Aunt Augusta, is fed up with his spending habits and the neglect he's showing to his aging aunt, a lovely woman who stares out the window, her heart slowly breaking, thinking she's forgotten by her only living kin. Lizzie pens an angry letter to the Devil, hitting him with a wallop of honesty.
Never in their wildest dreams did Dev and Lizzie think their meeting would stir so many emotions. But they have something in common - they've both chosen to be alone.
