Emily refused to listen to Denning, the man she loved, when he insisted that their betrothal be broken before Emily became the laughing stock of Regency society.
Emily refused to listen to stern General Beresford, who declared that while Denning might be most amusing, he was also entirely unsuitable.

Emily listened to one voice only – that of her own imperious, imprudent and imperiled heart!
