Beautiful and headstrong Mary Ann had always lived in a sheltered world-- until the day her pretty maid's romantic indiscretion forced Mary Ann to confront the worldly and licentious Edward Carradine. Out this explosive meeting came the most unlikely love ever to scandalize Regency London. But one woman was determined that this unusual couple would never reach the altar. Edward's exquisite but low-born mistress, Sophie Devereux, was both dangerously seductive and dangerously connected--and she was not above using her unsavory friends from the Pleasure Gardens to achieve her ends!
