Publisher's Summary

Karina Halle, the New York Times bestselling author of Discretion, lifts the veil off a privileged family dynasty to reveal a wealth of secrets and dangerous obsessions.

Seraphine Dumont seems to have it all: she’s gorgeous, brilliant, and part of one of France’s most illustrious dynasties. But underneath the facade, Seraphine struggles to hold it all together. Besides grieving her adoptive father’s suspicious and sudden death, she also shares a tenuous role in the family business with Blaise, her in-name-only cousin. As tumultuous as their history is, he may be the only member of the deceptive Dumont family she can trust.

Seraphine is a temptation Blaise can’t resist. The torch he’s carried for years still burns. It’s his secret - a quiet obsession just out of reach. Until his brother demands that he spy on the increasingly cagey Seraphine, whom their father considers a dispensable Dumont outlier. But the more Blaise watches her and the closer he gets, the more he sees Seraphine may have every right to be suspicious. And she could be the next one in danger - from his own family.

As blood runs hot and hearts give in, Seraphine and Blaise have only each other. But can their love survive the secrets they’re about to uncover?

This might be the book where I preferred the heroine over the hero!!! After Discretion, I was excited to get Seraphine and Blaise’s story after only getting glimpses that something was happening between them from Olivier’s POV.

Seraphibe’s heartbreaking childhood proves that pain and grief while sad are not signs of weakness. She is saved from her broken history in an orphanage and foster care by the Dumont family. She’s given all the riches and superiority that comes with the Dumont name. But, she is also for the first time in her life
given a real family and love.
However, not all Dumonts feel the same towards a foster child. Her Uncle and his family feel that only the bloodline should benefit from the Dumont name
and often seem threatened by Seraphine. Except for Blaise. Although, he doesn’t treat her with kindness that the rest of her family does he does show hints of being softer towards Seraphine and even small bits of affection. However, there’s a battle between his emotions towards her, how his father feels towards her and also the small fact that she is his cousin...not by blood, but cousin nonetheless.

Together the two of them navigate the complicated truths of their families and who stands where.
