From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Olivia Drake, a steamy Regency romance…

Raven-haired beauty, Vivien Thorne has been raised by a devoted and loving Romani couple, who she believed to be her parents. But when the Rosebuds, three elder noble ladies who rule the ton, visit her palm-reading shop to reveal she’s the illegitimate daughter of a governess, long since passed, Vivien’s entire world is turned upside down.

The Rosebuds convince her to accompany them to the Marchioness’s estate, Stokeford Abbey, where she is to be taught how to be a proper lady. As Vivien learns the rules of how to be a lady, she develops a natural bond with the aging Marchioness, who is easily charmed by the pretty and sincere newcomer.

When Michael Kenyon, the current Marquess of Stokeford, and reigning rogue of the ton, arrives home, he’s certain that this stunning young woman with the dark hair and fiery eyes is here to con his grandmother. But as Michael and Vivien spend more time together, Michael confronts his preconceived notions about the Romani and begins to see Vivien for who she really is—a kind-hearted beauty who is devoted to others…

Just when Vivien begins to feel comfortable in this strange new society, another secret comes to light, one that will challenge everything she ever knew about herself—and her newfound love with a wicked Marquess…
