Miss Helen Fairmead was an innocent in the ways of the world, so her older sister and sensible brother-in-law took great pains to select a perfect suitor for her. His name was Ralph St. John and he was everything a proper young lady would want in a gentleman. Lord Adam Drummond, on the other hand, was everything a young lady should avoid. A shocking scandal in his past belied his dashing good looks and devilish charm. It was clear which man Miss Fairmead should choose, especially when St. John pressed for her hand in marriage. But though Helen dares not give Lord Drummond even her name, she finds herself longing to give him everything else.
