(From the publisher):
The first encounter between Fleur Hamilton and the Duke of Ridgeway outside the Drury Lane Theater one night is ugly and sordid. She is a prostitute, he her customer. When they meet again, she is in his own home as governess to his daughter. His wife, the duchess, lives there too. That love should grow between Fleur and the duke seems improbable. That their love can have a future seems quite impossible.
