It all began in The Courtesan's Daughter and continued
through the next four books of the Courtesan Chronicles. The
Marquis of Dutton didn't pay the slightest bit of attention
to Anne Warren until he found out that she was the daughter
of a courtesan. His careless, confident, ill-considered
pursuit of her began upon that lurid foundation.
Anne had been smitten by the dashing Lord Dutton from
her first encounter with him. But to be pursued because her
mother was a woman of the demi-monde? No. That was
unacceptable. Anne was not going to make the mistakes her
mother had made, each decision taking her further down the
social ladder. Anne meant to improve her station, not hobble
it with an amorous encounter with the nearly irresistible
Over the course of the London Season of 1802, Dutton
pursued and lost Anne again and again. He became something
of a drunken sot about it all, even a laughingstock. When
Anne married Lord Staverton, his fall was complete. Anne
married wisely, and Dutton was befuddled by it.
Two years later, in the 1804 Season, Anne is a widow and
Dutton is sober. Lady Staverton and Lord Dutton, both
available and both still interested, continue the seductive
dance they began when she was his social inferior. She is no

It all depends upon whom you ask.
