A Mysterious Miss . . .
From the stage of the Royal Coburg Theatre, Lissa Findlay saw Lord Ashe watching her. She knew the notorious rake was looking for a mistress, and though circumstances had forced her to become an actress to survive -- a definite lowering of her social status -- she would never lose her virtue. Never!
A Dashing Lord . . .
Lord Ashe was accustomed to pursuing women of "experience." But the innocent-looking beauty at the Coburg had captivated him in unexpected ways. And yet, when he made his advances, the cheeky miss slapped him most roundly. Despite being spurned, Lord Ashe was unable to forget her or her dire situation. If she wouldn't share his bed, perhaps she could share his house.
A Shocking Proposal . . .
Lord Ashe proposed a new role for Lissa as governess to his nephew. If the ton, or his dowager mother, discovered her real profession, t'would be a scandal. But a tale as dramatic as any playwright ever writ was unfolding with a villain in the wings, a fortune at stake, and a lord discovering he too had a role to play . . . as a hero for love!
