Lady Helaine's father was cast
out of society as a liar and a thief—a scandal which
renders her unfit for marriage. In order to provide for
herself and her mother, she adopts an assumed name and runs
a dressmaker's shop that specializes in bridal wear for
ladies of high society. Helaine is happiest immersed in silk
and satin, but she lives in terror that someone will learn
her true identity and she will lose everything...again.
Robert Percy, Viscount Redhill, is entranced with the
mysterious Helaine and weaves a web of seduction sure to
ensnare the delectable dress designer. Yet too late he
learns the heartbreaking truth about who she used to be. Now
he must find a way to overcome the past to claim Helaine as
his own. But what chance has love when a secret mistress
becomes a scandalous wife?
