The Men of Roxbury House

A devil's bargain.
"The photograph must be damning, indisputably so. I mean
to see Caledonia Rivers not only ruined but vanquished.
Vanquished, St. Claire, I'll settle for nothing less."
Known as The Maid of Mayfair for her unassailable virtue,
unwavering resolve, and quiet dignity, suffragette leader,
Caledonia - Callie - Rivers is the perfect counter for
detractors' portrayal of the women as rabble rousers,
lunatics, even whores. But a high-ranking enemy within the
government will stop at nothing to ensure that the
Parliamentary bill to grant the vote to females dies in
the Commons - including ruining the reputation of the
Movement's chief spokeswoman.
After a streak of disastrous luck at the gaming tables
threatens to land him at the bottom of the Thames,
photographer Hadrian St. Claire reluctantly agrees to
seduce the beautiful suffragist leader and then use his
camera to capture her fall from grace. Posing as the
photographer commissioned to make her portrait for the
upcoming march on Parliament, Hadrian infiltrates Callie's
inner circle. But lovely, soft-spoken Callie hardly fits
his mental image of a dowdy, man-hating spinster. And as
the passion between them flares from spark to full-on
flame, Hadrian is the one in danger of being vanquished.
