A spunky actress facing ruin. A roguish heir who swore off love. A twist of fate entangles them in danger, high society and sparkling sizzle.
When fiercely independent actress Clarissa St. Claire is threatened with ruin by a viscount who simply won’t take ‘no’ for an answer, she needs to come up with a plan, and fast. Removing herself to distant Westfield Castle seems oh, so foolproof at the time. There her acting talents and a false identity work to her advantage as she handily scales the social hurtles that await her, only to have the viscount show up without warning to renew his advances and expose her deception.
Alex Westfield is a captain in the Royal Guards and heir to the Westfield baronetcy who doesn’t think it’s possible to balance military life with a love life, so he leaves love out of the equation. When he gets wind of Clarissa’s predicament, he gallantly proposes a daring scheme that, when set in motion, catapults her into high society.
So what’s a leading lady to do when she’s cast in the role of a lifetime? Why, get ready to improvise, of course.
