Lady Diana Saintwood is fed up – with the men of London, a man who refuses to marry her, and her interfering mother. As she faces what might very well be her last season in London, she is determined to live life to the fullest. All she truly desires is a few moments of fun for herself before the ever-proper Duke of Hathaway proposes – more out of a sense of duty than for any other reason, of course. If he ever gets around to the actual proposal, that is.
Laird Lachlan McKenna, the newly named Marquess of Hallstone, is in London for more than one reason. Lachlan is on a quest to right the wrongs his father has committed over the years before the disagreeable old man passes on and leaves his only son and heir nothing more than a bad reputation. If Lachlan should find a woman that captures his attention in the process, one who might make a suitable wife, so much the better. When he encounters Lady Diana Saintwood, however, Lachlan learns two things rather quickly. One, she is far from suitable wife material, and two, she has completely captured his heart with one witty conversation.
Will Diana choose the wild, reckless path that leads straight into Lachlan’s arms or will she do as duty demands and wed Hathaway as everyone – including her mother – expects?
