Regency Love in the Ballrooms of London Growing up in an impoverished country clergyman's house with four male cousins could hardly prepare young Sydney Archer for Regency London. But, in a whirl of balls and garden parties, the beautiful, witty young lady can't help but dazzle everyone – except her guardian.
The reclusive, handsome Andrew Innes, the Marquess of Lyle, simply wants to get Sydney married and off his hands as quickly as possible. Seeing that her love is hopeless, Sydney decides to pursue a career in the theatre. But suddenly, her talents land her in the middle of a society scandal, a hot-headed duel, and a passionately breathtaking romance.
