Beautiful, charming, and witty Victoria Seymour was everything an aristocratic gentleman could want in a wife. But unfortunately for her swarm of suitors, none of them was what Vicky wanted in a husband.
Vicky vowed that if she did not fall deeply and hopelessly in love, she would never marry, even if it meant fleeing the London marriage once and for all.
On the highway to her country retreat, Vicky met Mr. Andrew Massingham, an unscrupulous fortune-hunter no sensible young lady would ever be foolish enough to trust. But knowing the danger of falling in love with him and avoiding that perilous pitfall were two very different things. And Vicky was horrified to discover that her heart was capable of betraying her to a man who might betray her more.
