Cecilia Lilly has but one grand ambition - to become the mistress of a titled gentleman. But when the Marquess of Longmere becomes her "protector," she learns the truth of the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." Yet even after suffering a severe beating, she finds it difficult to adjust her basic snobbery when help comes in the form of an alleged lord of London's Underworld. No matter how much he offers - vengeance, the opportunity to aid orphans and unwed mothers - she cannot see past his guttersnipe origins. Cecilia has a considerable amount of growing up to do before her world comes right.
