The season has yet to begin, and Anthony Blake, Viscount Torrington, is already a target for every matchmaking mama in London.
But there is only one lady who sparks his interest... Desperate and penniless, but determined, Alicia plans to make an excellent match for her ravishing younger sister.
But one moonlit stroll may prove Alicia's undoing when it leads to an accusation of murder.
Every instinct Tony Blake possesses tells him that Alicia- the exquisite beauty he discovers standing over a dead body - is innocent of serious wrongdoing.
His social prominence will certainly work in her favour.
But it is more than honour that compels Tony to protect her - and he will do everything in his seductive power to make Alicia his.
