As far as matrimonial prospects were concerned, Lucy Bliss was told she'd make an excellent clergyman's wife.
Her mother had loftier aspirations, however, for her lovely younger sister Belinda. Belinda would marry a duke, more specifically, the Duke of Wardshire. Lucy was truly horrified. "Lucifer" Wardshire was rumored to be as wicked as the devil, with orgies and mistresses—and worse.
As the London season unfolded, Lucy couldn't decide who was more abominable, her vulgar mama or the arrogant yet disconcertingly handsome duke. But Lucy vowed to go to any lengths to protect her sister, even if her mission should take her into the very arms of the devilish duke himself.
