Lady Victoria Arbuthnot has always done exactly what she wants. So she's delighted when she bags drop-dead-gorgeous Lord Malfrey before she's even got off the boat from India. But then a dashing young sea captain starts spreading stories about her man. Could it be that Vicky's happy-ever-after with Lord M. might not be so happy after all?
Growing up in far-off India, wealthy young heiress Lady Victoria Arbuthnot is accustomed to handling her own affairs. But in her sixteenth year, Vicky is unceremoniously shipped off to London to find a husband. She may be in a strange new city, but Vicky knows one thing: her own mind. And she has decided that handsome, worldly Hugo Rothschild will suit her needs admirably in the matrimonial department.
