When she finds him dead, Scotland Yard considers her a prime suspect and escorts her to London. Grace searches for a family friend for help, but finds Lord Ruthveyn instead. Over the next few days Ruthveyn uses his access to the Queen, and also his supernatural sleuthing skills, to determine that Grace is being framed. At the same time there are tremendous mental, emotional and physical sparks flying between them. Having plighted his troth to Grace, Ruthveyn makes a silent vow to love and protect her no matter what.
