Juliette de Flournoy refuses to be imprisoned by her past – the French Revolution that robbed her family of their heritage, and the rape that left her homeless – comforting herself with her dreams of becoming London’s premier modiste, and by her friends, the enterprising ladies of Mrs. Gerrard’s, London’s most exclusive seraglio.

Then she meets Major Lord Adrian Claverton, the hero of her dreams, if she allowed herself to have them. Mrs. Gerrard’s ladies do not believe in love, but Juliette is not so sure. Will pride and her stubborn refusal to let anyone take care of her rob her of a chance to find out?

Major Lord Adrian Claverton wanted to right the wrongs of the world until war taught him that helping others sometimes makes their lives worse. Will he be able to convince the independent Juliette to let him help her, and will he realize that only someone who has suffered greatly can cure his own despair?

Colin, Earl of Shefford, visits a building he won, having determined its address to be an excellent location for a new club. Discovering not only a fully functioning orphanage but a beautiful headmistress, who refuses his offer of an alternative establishment, he suffers a pique of temper. Irritated by her immunity to his charms, he succumbs to intense attraction and offers her a choice. Either she must accept him in a marriage of convenience or provide proof that the orphanage has value to him.

Impoverished and needing to restore her fortunes, Miss Honoria Mason despises the members of the ton for their extravagance and blames them for her family’s loss of home and fortune. Nora’s life takes a turn when the handsome Lord Shefford becomes the orphanage’s landlord. Either she proves the orphanage’s worth to him in two weeks or becomes his convenient bride in order that he may produce an heir. She refuses to lose the orphanage she has worked so hard to preserve and so accepts his offer to marry.

Sparks fly as proximity forces them together, the better to know each other. Yet how may romance overcome such hazardous beginnings when resentment has stacked the dice against them?
