Summary

FAMILY IS EVERYTHING…OR IS IT MONEY IS EVERYTHING? 
Once, I had a few dollars. 
Gained some more little by little. 
Then one day I found a way to have it all. 
Funny, how a good idea only sounds good when you haven't actually done it. 
But I had you. 
After our mom died you were all I had left. 
I stood by you, fought for you and tried to make our lives better. 
The whole time you were with me. Rooting for us to succeed. Chasing the dream by my side like a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde. 
You were my brother. 
But how stupid was I to think that blood and the word family would be thicker than water. 
Some say people change. 
But in this story, the only one who's forced to change is me.

At that notorious establishment, ladies don masks before choosing a lover. The sinfully handsome Duke of Ashebury is more than willing to satisfy the secretive lady's desires—and draws Minerva into an exquisite, increasingly intimate affair. 
    A man of remarkable talents, Ashe soon deduces that his bedmate is the unconventional Miss Dodger. Intrigued by her wit and daring, he sets out to woo her in earnest. Yet Minerva refuses to trust him. How to court a woman he has already thoroughly seduced? And how to prove that the passion unleashed in darkness is only the beginning of a lifetime's pleasure . . . ?
