After the disgrace of a wedding that did not quite succeed in happening, Lady Blanchette Cavendish was finally ready to consider speaking to gentlemen again.
She had not expected to meet two interesting men at once, during her parent’s house party. Nor had she expected seduction, and disreputable behaviour.
Captain Henry Westbury has no interest in speaking of his experiences in the war - yet he finds himself confiding in the captivating Lady Blanchette. It's a pity that she won't confide in him - for he is certain that she is troubled, and all is not as it seems. He has the unpleasant suspicion that her troubles are caused by the dashing rake, Mr James Blackwood.
Can Henry help her, or is a duel of honour the only solution? Can Blanchette save her reputation, and still have the man that she has come to love? Or will her moment of irresponsible passion doom her to ruin?

Anna Perkins needed her job, as a maid at Havisham Hall, home of the Earl of Stanningfield, to survive, but one small accident was enough to put everything at risk, including her heart. Spilling a tray of jellies all over a member of the aristocracy was definitely not what she had set out to do! The fact that the gentleman in question was kind to her, and was, in addition, quite the most handsome man that she had ever met, was more difficult to deal with than cruelty might have been.
Richard Maitland, Viscount Bellham, was instantly captivated by the beautiful maid he collided with in the corridor, jellies notwithstanding. Something about her fascinated him, and raised his desire, in a way that the husband hunting young ladies of the aristocracy did not. A rather annoying thing for him to discover, given that dallying with the lower classes was not on his agenda, and might even get him disinherited, should his family discover it.
But love and desire have no respect for “how things should be”, and, sometimes, fate intervenes with an unexpected outcome…..
