"If she truly knows her business, a woman has the mind
of a diplomat, a general, and Cleopatra, all in one."
Anne–Sophia Duncombe is ruined, a victim of her
father's high–stakes gambling. Stolen moments at the
piano are her boon. Wilhelm Montegue is a washed up war
hero, rumored insane. His "condition" – modern
diagnosis: savant autism – is the source of his gift
for composing music. Anne–Sophia and Wilhelm thought
they had missed their chance for love, but anything can
happen in the music room.
Anne–Sophia is in exile, hiding from her
villainous father, Lord Chauncey, who tried to force her
into marrying the repulsive Lowdry, his partner in crime.
She outsmarted them and ran away, but loneliness is its own
captivity. As a last resort before the convent, Sophia
attempts a radical scheme––a life of humility
Wilhelm Montegue, Earl of Devon, is a washed–up
war hero who drinks too much, offends his neighbors with
his harsh wit, and breaks furniture when his temper flares.
Always in the shadow of scandal and absent from society, he
is the subject of intense gossip. The town whispers that he
is insane and guilty of unnatural proclivities. He is
barely excused by his brilliant mind and swarthy good looks.
Lord Devon is bewildered that his newest housemaid has
sparked such an irritating fascination in him. Why must she
be the most exquisite woman he ever laid eyes on? Chaste
and bound by honor, he vows to behave himself, even if her
voice is a siren song. He knows she is keeping secrets, and
he finds her scent of danger intoxicating . . . .
