One minute, Amaryllis Duvane is the belle of the London season—a "diamond of the first water," desired by every man and envied by every woman. Even better, she's about to marry the man of her dreams.
But when her father dies, Amaryllis loses more than a parent—she loses her fortune. Left penniless, she's forced to depend on the generosity of her wealthy relations, who make her work as a servant to her own socially ambitious cousins.
When her ex-fianc├®, the devastatingly handsome Marquess of Merechester, courts one of her relatives, Amaryllis can't bear the thought of him seeing what's become of her—or how much she still desires him.
