Cole was raised by Lord James and worries for the two young boys in more than one way. Since he is a teacher by training and a cousin many times removed, Cole is hired as tutor for Jonet's boys and brought into her household.
Cole and Jonet, unaware of forces working against them, begin a stormy relationship. He begins to love her children and Jonet herself. Cole is at odds with what his mission truly is: Find Jonet an unfit mother or find salvation for himself.
