Summary

Behind every good man...is the love of an even better woman. Those were just pretty words before I met Claire Montgomery. Before my fairy queen burst into my life, I didn’t recognize the bastard in my morning mirror—but her love has given me the strength to face the imposter, even embrace him. With Claire at my side, I’m the king I always wanted to be, the Killian Stone I always dreamed of becoming. 
 
Which means for once, I want the mask guarding my secret to stay right where it is. 
 
If you want the grown-up fairy tale... learn to love the dark side.
 
Profound sentiment. Wish I could get on board with it but the prince in pinstripes has other ideas. Life has been a dream since Killian burst into the ball offering the perfect fit—
 
his heart and mine.
 
But the treasures he bestows have become his armor, hiding the man I yearn to know.
 
I refuse to open his little velvet box until he opens himself, letting me see even the dark hallways of his soul... 
 
Fate has always bowed to my bidding.
 
I should have known it was just picking it's time to exact the best revenge, to reveal the secrets that will destroy everything. Without my disguise, am I still the man Claire fell in love with...or another penniless prince vying for an unattainable dream?
 
 
 
Mistress of his ruin?
 
He always told me to be careful what I wish for. By demanding his truth, have I not only demolished the dream we had...but the man I’ve loved more than any other?

    Kit Ruthven's Rules (for Rogues) 
    #1 Love freely but guard your heart, no matter how tempting the invader. 
    #2 Embrace temptation, indulge your sensual impulses, and never apologize. 
    #3 Scorn rules and do as you please. You are a rogue, after all. 
    Rules never brought anything but misery to Christopher “Kit” Ruthven. After rebelling against his controlling father and leaving the family’s etiquette empire behind, Kit has been breaking every one imaginable for the past four years. He’s enjoyed London’s sensual pleasures, but he’s failed to achieve the success he craves as London’s premier playwright. When his father dies, Kit returns to the countryside and is forced back into the life he never wanted. Worse, he must face Ophelia Marsden, the woman he left behind years before. 
    After losing her father, Ophelia has learned to rely on herself. To maintain the family home and support her younger sister, she tutors young girls in deportment and decorum. But her pupils would be scandalized if they knew she was also the author of a guidebook encouraging ladies to embrace their independence.  
    As Kit rediscovers the life, and the woman, he left behind, Ophelia must choose between the practicalities she never truly believed in, or the love she’s never been able to extinguish.
