“Something would have to be done about Ariana.”

Mr. Philip Mornay is London’s current darling rogue. Ariana Forsythe is a sweet girl from the country with no experience in London society. Ariana and Mr. Mornay’s first encounter is rather embarrassing for Ariana. His response didn’t help matters. The story captured me from the start and I had a hard time putting it down.
