An Education in Ruin

Alexis Bass

From Alexis Bass, the acclaimed author of Happily and Madly, comes this lush and sophisticated tale of scandal, greed, love, and revenge, An Education in Ruin


The Mahoney brothers are the golden boys of Rutherford Institute.


Collins Pruitt is going to ruin them.


Theo Mahoney is well-connected and popular. He’s charming and beloved. But he’s hiding something.


Jasper Mahoney is lauded for his intellect and athleticism. He’s studious and focused. But he isn’t as impenetrable as he seems.


Collins will earn their trust—and then she’ll destroy them. But the closer she gets, the more she questions the reason she was sent to Rutherford in the first place…and if it’s possible to ruin the Mahoneys without also destroying herself.
