The lovely Lady Chloe Maitland is caught on the horns of a devilish dilemma. As a proper young country miss in the London marriage mart, she is duty bound to obey her dragon of a grandmamma and give her hand to the aging Lord Twisdale, who has buried one young wife and now lusts after an even younger one. But if Twisdale sent shivers down Chloe's spine, Julian St. Aubyn makes her shrink as from a flame. St. Aubyn is the most wicked rake in the realm and Chloe's innocence is no match for his infamous expertise. Should Chloe sacrifice her happiness on the altar of duty, or her virtue in the arms of a man who mocks all decency? She has heard the response of her heart and knows how wrong it could be.
