the seduction of viscount vice, turns its lens on the third co-owner of london's most wicked and most celebrated, house of sinful pleasures. it all starts when iain vissen discovers mairi macnair has infiltrated his staff, he is beyond stunned. he'd been told she was dead. he'd loved her. she broke his heart.
mairi is equally horrified to have come face-to-face with a man she had used pretty callously. she knew he loved her, but she was about to be forced into an engagement that she couldn't tolerate, and so she staged a scene that would result in her banishment from polite society. making love with iain on that wild scottish moor had been eye-opening. she'd learned what she desired most of all was to have sex while on display. a kind of exhibitionism that was frowned upon by society in general.
and she's not really had a chance to enjoy her desires freely. since escaping to the continent she's been serving as an unpaid maid and seamstress to yvette, the spoiled and lazy frenchwoman who is planning to open a club to rival fallen. and who has promised mairi a starring role in their opening production.
for some reason, mairi is too grateful and too blind to see how this woman is taking advantage of her and clearly has no plans to allow mairi to be anything but a seamstress. this is somewhat frustrating because mairi is strong and independent and capable pretty much in every other aspect of her life. she is a worthy adversary to iain. she keeps him on his toes. and the chemistry between them is explosive. and when they realize that they actually share the same kink? well, it's kind of unstoppable.
the plot here gets short shrift because of the short format, everything seems to spiral out and then back into submission rather quickly. but it's kind of nice because in the end, the kinky owners of fallen all find their perfect matches, and london society as always enjoys the scandal.
