Can Felicity uncover the secrets of her past?
Orphaned and with little inheritance, for years Felicity Temple has earned her keep as a schoolmistress at an academy for young ladies and has never mixed with the Ton.
However, when she is taken out of the academy by her guardian — the devious Lord Maskery — Felicity is thrust into respectable society with little preparation.
At her first party, the cynical Raoul, Lord Lynchmere wins Felicity’s company for the evening in a mock auction. But to her horror, by the end of the night it becomes apparent that her guardian has abandoned her.
Destitute and with no memories of any family besides her deceased father, Felicity is forced to turn to Raoul for aid.
Concerned for her welfare, Raoul vows to help Felicity out of her predicament and discover what has become of her guardian.
But it soon becomes clear that there is more to Felicity’s background than meets the eye. Their curiosity piqued, she and Raoul are drawn into an impromptu quest to uncover the truth about her mysterious origins…
