    The house, situated in one of Edinburgh's most exclusive streets, was known the length and breadth of the country; a magnet for red-blooded males, single or otherwise. Danube Street was always the first port of call when Merchant or Naval ships docked in Leith, and was the attraction, never to be missed by visiting clergymen of every denomination.
    Stella Gold began life far from the bright lights of the city. Born Agnes McLeod, she was reared in the wilds of Ayrshire. The only daughter of a tenant farmer, she endured a harsh, rugged upbringing. Now, although the darling of Edinburgh's glitterati, she finds herself the victim of a vendetta by the city's most dangerous and violent criminal brothers,and a corrupt Chief of Police.
    Survival was a constant challenge which Stella thought she had under control. How wrong could she be?
