A flirtation across the social divide may lead to lasting love—or betrayal—in this sparkling Edwardian romance by the New York Times–bestselling author.

Polly Marsh wasn’t born into high society, but she has high ambitions—and confidence that her beauty is enough to land a dashing nobleman. Taking a position as a stenographer for a prestigious family firm, she soon finds that she’s succeeded in capturing the attention of Lord Peter.

Others—such as his mother the duchess and Peter’s brother the marquis—are not as delighted by the situation as Polly is. Everyone seems to believe Peter’s intentions are unserious, and some are willing to sabotage. But Polly is nothing if not determined. The only question left to be answered is whether her faith is well-placed . . .

This historical novel, previously published under the names Jennie Tremaine and Marion Chesney, comes from the author known for her popular Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin series and praised as “a romance writer who deftly blends humor and adventure”
