Clea Bradford is a striking creature with her sun-kissed hair and incredibly long legs, but definitely not in vogue. Her Aunt, Lady Floss Dearborn is determined to ensure that the girls entrance to the ton is greeted with respect. She achieves her purpose, but it is by announcing Cleas fake engagement to an aristocrat who is better suited for her. But lurking behind every corner is Lord Ranulf, a man driven by vengeance. He mistakenly assumes the bohemian is her aunt and plans to exact his revenge for an unsubstantiated rumor of a wrong committed against his relative, Flosss deceased husband. Everywhere Clea turns, Ranulf is right behind her. But his searing hatred is beginning to melt beneath Cleas piercing gaze. Now, rather than burning with revenge, his heart is scorching with passion.
