Shy, plain Hetty has no ambition to rival her older sister, Araminta, the ton’s reigning beauty.
Nor does she intend to snare handsome Sir Aubrey, the rich, mysterious viscount who has entranced her vain and determined sibling.
Sir Aubrey is far too dangerous and unpredictable…albeit completely delicious.
But when Sir Aubrey mistakes Hetty for a lady of the night, the innocent debutante can’t resist his fiery kisses.
Spinsterhood has been her long-accepted destiny and their stolen encounters may be her only chance to experience the sensual attentions of a man who, to her surprise, appears increasingly entranced.
As Hetty begins to dream of a future together, the whispers in society that Sir Aubrey is a traitor and a murderer can no longer be ignored.
Now Hetty must find the courage to clear his name.
But can her reputation, and Sir Aubrey's feelings for her, survive what a suspicious and vengeful Araminta has up her sleeve?
Surprises abound in this steamy, suspenseful Regency-set drama where each nobly-born Partington sister will win the husband they truly deserve.
