Excerpt from
The Duchess Diaries,
Volume One



Dearest Lara,

You have, by now, been told of my plan for you to make a match during your first Season, despite your lack of a dowry or any desire for a husband. As your grandmother, I know it's your nature to accept all challenges. On your way, then. But first, some advice from my diaries. If you must act scandalously, make sure you're not recognized. Always act clever; it will make everyone realize that you are clever. And never take anyone at face value…

Excerpt from the Diary of Lady Lara Darling

Dearest Diary,

I have not even made it to London, and I have broken all of Grandmother's rules. As is my wont, I did something horribly scandalous, was not at all clever, and was misled by first impressions. But, as it turned out, the distractingly handsome man I believed unworthy of second thoughts (aside from a gasp of appreciation for his physical attributes) merits many more indeed. Which means I should never see him again, don't you think?

Or will I muck that up as well?
