original release title "Heart's Folly" Nicholas, Lord Kincaid, had finally found a weapon to use against his archrival, the powerful Duke of Buckingham--Polly Wyatt, the beautiful tavern wench Nick had rescued from the London slums. Little did he suspect that this urchin would so thoroughly complicate his life!
An irrepressible actress, both onstage and off, Polly played the role of a lifetime when Nick established her in their own cozy love nest, then set her to entrap his enemy. But as the duke grew suspicious, Polly's passion for the devilishly charming Nick surpassed her willingness to continue the dangerous ploy. And when the duke's cruel revenge threatened their very survival, Nick's fury matched his determination to win forever the leading lady who had so completely captured his heart.
