I am a girl of noble family, but I am painfully shy,
especially in my encounters with those of the opposite sex .
For Clara Deverill, standing in for the real Lady Truelove
means dispensing advice on problems she herself has never
managed to overcome. Thereâ€™s nothing for it but to retreat
to a tearoom and hope inspiration strikes between scones. It

Rex Galbraith is an heir with no plans to produce a spare.
He flirts with the minimum number of eligible young ladies
to humor his matchmaking aunt, but Clara is the first to
ever catch his roving eye. When he realizes that Claraâ€”as
Lady Trueloveâ€”has used his advice as newspaper fodder, heâ€™s
infuriated. But when heâ€™s forced into a secret alliance with
her, he realizes heâ€™s got a much bigger problemâ€”because
Clara is upending everything Rex thought he knew about
womenâ€”and about himself. . . .
