For Lady Jane Daitry, the road to London was paved with the best intentions. Her brother Patrick had only her future in mind when he sent her there to make a proper match in the Marriage Mart. And her plan to pursue her passion for painting, by finding the finest teacher in this capital of culture, was just as beneficial for her.
But shocking to say, Patrick put her welfare in the hands of his old war comrade, Lord Alexander Barrington, who also happened to be the most irrestible rake in the realm. And when this libertine lord's handsome face began to inspire Lady Jane with more than the desire to capture him on canvas, she found that she not only was taking lessons in designs from one master, she was taking lessons in love from another - at a price that well might be ruinous.
