Fueled by the knowledge that notoriety is better than
failure, witty, unconventional Josie does what no proper
young lady should—she challenges fate. She discards her
corset and flirts outrageously. She attends the horse
races and allows an arrogant rakehell to whisk her behind
the stables for a surreptitious kiss . . . and is caught!
She doesn't want to marry the young hellion—but who's to
help? Her chaperone keeps disappearing for mysterious
appointments; her guardian is on his wedding trip; and his
friend the Earl of Mayne is too busy staring into the eyes
of his exquisite French fiancée.
Can a marriage forced by stuffy convention and unwilling
desire become the match of the season?
