(From the publisher):
Simon Belleville should have taken the poor prostitute straight to Newgate prison. As the head of Her Majesty's Morality and Vice Commission, he's supposed to be closing down brothels -- not consorting with the "Ladies" who work in them. But one glimpse of Christine Iremayre's sweet, innocent face, and he is enraptured. And instead of locking her up in a jail cell, he enrolls her in finishing school -- hoping against hope that he will be able to put her out of his mind. Now that he has a chance to win a seat in Parliament, the last thing he wants is a scandal. But the lovely Christine proves to be a woman unlike any other -- charming and smart, deeply mysterious and deliciously witty. And Simon has never been so intrigued -- or so tempted...
