Raised in an exclusive boarding school among Fifth Avenue’s finest, Meg Davenport has all she’s ever needed—but none of the things she’s wanted most, like family or dreams of a future that include anything other than finding a suitable match. So when her distant father dies, she seizes the chance to throw etiquette aside and do as she pleases, especially when she learns that John Davenport wasn’t the wealthy businessman she thought, but one of the Gilded Age’s most talented thieves.

Poised to lead those loyal to Meg’s father, Ian Maguire knows the last thing his mentor would have wanted is for his beloved daughter to follow in his footsteps. Yet Meg is determined, and her connections to one of New York’s wealthiest families could help Ian pull off his biggest heist yet. But are they both in over their heads? And in trying to gain everything, will they end up losing it all?

Quotes & Awards

  • “In the middle of a growing romance…the author uses a slow-moving, unlikely plot to touch on issues on abandonment, loyalty, faith, and life not always going the way you plan.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This character-driven historical set in the American Gilded Age represents Lang at her best.”

    Library Journal

  • “Lang’s talent shines through…She clearly depicts the difference between grace—an undeserved gift—and mercy—when one is spared a deserved punishment. The grandeur of the era is evident in the story, the charming characters, the beautifully descriptive prose.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lyndi | 5/28/2013

    " I again wish I could do half or 3/4 ratings here. As this book deserved more than a 3, but less than a four. It was pretty easy to guess what was going to happen, there were few surprises in this book. But it was a good read. "

    " good story and plot. a little slow of a read. would have enjoyed more of a storyline between Meg and Ian, rather than on how they wanted to be thieves. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janice Pauc | 1/15/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 10/21/2012

    " Saying that I read this book isn't exactly true. I skipped around. A lot. Why? Because it was repetitive and I just couldn't muster up the energy to really care about these characters. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't just finished a book that I really, really liked! "

    " A little slow at the beginning... But, once it picked up & got my attention, it was great! "
