"Who but the heartless Lord Arlington could refuse his ward her debut season in London? So fumes Alexandria Hilliard when she receives the infamous rake's curt reply. Vowing to give her sister an opportunity to toast the ton, Alexandria gamely decides to take a house in London and pay for the debut from her own legacy. Convinced that she herself is much too sensible for romance, she imagines sitting contentedly on the sidelines at Almack's with the other spinsters and chaperones.
Little does she know that her lovely red hair and temper to match are sure to beguile the most jaded bachelor, including the odious Lord Arlington. But in the dangerous intrigues that follow, Alexandria discovers that the darkly handsome Arlington is anything but hateful."
