“No Woman’s Reputation Can Survive a Journey under the Notorious Marquess’s Protection!” The scheme was madness! What scandal would erupt if it became public that Lady Annabelle Smythe had traveled to Paris with that infamous libertine, Lord Ellerton.
But while posing as Miss Anna Smith, governess to Ellerton's headstrong sister, Annabelle hoped to locate her cousin, Jean-Louis. For he was her last, desperate hope to fight her greedy half brother's horrid schemes.
No one was more surprised than the Notorious Marquess when he found himself charmed by the calm, capable, quick-witted Miss Smith. Despite his cavalier reputation, it was not her virtue he sought . . . but her heart!
