What More Could a Young Lady Desire? Miss Verity Stratton was enchantingly beautiful, the belle of the London season. To add to this, Verity was bearer of one of England's proudest names and heiress to one of the realm's greatest fortunes. Even better she was ardently courted by Derek Vane, Marquess of Unger, whose incredible good looks, eminent title, and vast wealth made him the perfect match for her as far as he and all the rest of society was concerned.
But Verity longed for the one thing that even the munificent marquess was not willing to give . . . a frightfully scandalous freedom that no proper young lady should want. And to get it Verity was willing to risk everything she had and far more than she could afford to lose . . . as she entered into a novel alliance.
