Her Family Was Scandalized! In Regency London, a young lady of aristocratic birth did not work for a living. But Miss Jamaica de Bowen was too independent to worry about that! And, determined to save her family from ruin, she made a bargain with her aunt: she would work as a governess for a year, and if the family fortunes hadn't improved by then, she'd marry a rich old marquis she detested.
But then two other men burst into Jamaica's life: one who though he wanted her, and one who thought he didn't. With her dreaded marriage fast approaching, one of the two young men was to teach Jamaica a stunning lesson: a young woman doesn't always know what's right and what's wrong for herself. Characters: Charles Greville, Earl of Dorrington and Miss Jamaica de Bowen
