Lady Alicia Had a Plan . . .
Since the gallants who courted her were enchanted only by her face and her fortune, Lady Alicia Morgan Fitzhugh St. John was determined to seek true love elsewhere — away from London and all who knew her.
So she created Morgan Fitzhugh, a gentlewoman of modest means and in need of employment. Answering an advertisement, Alicia was hired as personal secretary to Darcy Cummings, Baron Pennsfield. But then her stratagem broke down. The baron was uncommonly bad-tempered and seemed to take an instant dislike to her.
Clearly, love still eluded Alicia-but in the meantime, she just might enjoy a battle of wits!
