Summary

The third book in the beloved #1 bestselling author's sexy, romantic suspense Slow Burn series… 
They say young love doesn't last, but a girl from the wrong side of the tracks with unique abilities and the hometown golden boy were determined to defy the odds. For Zack Covington, Anna-Grace—his "Gracie"—was the one. Until one night forever alters the course of their future, when a devastated Gracie disappears without a trace, leaving Zack to agonize over what happened to the girl he loved. As the years pass, his desperate efforts to find her uncovered nothing. 
Now working for Devereaux Security, he stumbles across a painting featuring a special place only he and Gracie would know. The image is too perfectly rendered for it to be coincidence. His Gracie must be alive. When he finally tracks her down, he is shocked—and heart-broken—to discover the wounded shell of the girl he once knew and still loves. Her psychic gifts are gone, and worse, she believes he betrayed her all those years ago. 
Zack has enemies, and once his weakness is discovered, Gracie becomes a target for revenge. He'll have to save her before he can earn her trust and her love. And he vows they'll never be torn apart again.

    In the Victorian Era, public displays were always one of aristocratic pomp, where one's best foot was always to be put forward, for fear of any lords or ladies casting doubt upon one's social skills. All those painful and forced interactions, however reluctant, served as a means to judge loyalty to social standards often set by the ruling class, so that people who were sufficiently obedient could be properly elevated. The side effect of all this, of course, was a furious pent up frustration begging to be let out, and so the Victorian Era was home to some of the most deviant sexual displays in history. These three stories are accounts of such displays.
