(From the publisher):
When Lord Craythorne arrives at his sister's house to discover Flora Chayter, his niece's governess, canoodling with Malcom Brenner, he immediately dismisses her. His annoyance is therefore understandable when he finds that she is the companion of Mrs. Wylde, whom he has agreed to escort to Venice.
At first, his previous judgements of her seem to be confirmed, as he sees her pursued by his young cousin and one of his friends. But Flora is no temptress, but an honourable woman, and gradually, the earl is forced to re-examine his opinion.
Malcom's unexpected appearance seems to confirm Craythorne's original view, and he treats Flora with calculated insolence and contempt; but it is not until he almost loses her that he is forced to confront his true feelings for her.
