Has anyone in London ever taken part in the coming-out season with less enthusiasmthan Sabrina? She is young, lovely, and possesses a sparkling wit, yet she knows she is but a simple orphaned country girl—whose grandfather just happened to have been a nobleman—and therefore feels dreadfully out of place. Luckily Ophelia, the daughter of a family friend, has been chosen to usher Sabrina through the perils and pitfalls of this all-important first season.What better guide than thisterribly sophisticated blond beauty who is the most sought-after lady in the city?

Even less keen to be in London is Duncan MacTavish. Having lived twenty-one deliriously contented years in the Scottish Highlands, he has recently learned he is the sole heir of an English Marquis and is now required to assume his grandfather's title and estates. Worse still, a betrothal has already been arranged without his consent to the ravishing, viper-tongued Ophelia, who has been heard to make scathing statements in public about her Scottish barbarian groom-to-be.

Bad circumstance, however, can sometimes have distinctly pleasurable advantages, especially when his unwanted intended's sudden desire to repentbrings the dashing highlander into close proximity with the enchanting Sabrina. Now this is a woman for whom Duncan would willingly abandon hisbeloved Scotland: a kindred spirit whose wit delights him...and whose essence is the exquisite stuff ofdreams. But duty and station forbid Sabrina's andDuncan's desired union. And a ecret dwells in thelady's past, and it threatens their romance. Under such adverse conditions a match that should be,a passion that must be, cannot possibly be— unless true love can somehow, miraculously find a way.
