After eight years in the British Navy, Will Slater returns to London to resume his life as the son of a marquess. He’s determined to discover what’s become of his love, Lady Barbara. An earl’s daughter, she has disappeared from London.
Will’s bastard brother, Stephen, served with him and is ready to attend every ball and soirée necessary to earn acceptance in the ton. A dead ringer for his brother, he finds it easier than he should to navigate the choppy waters of aristocratic Society. And why wouldn’t he? All the ladies think he’s Will, especially after Will requests that they trade places and then leaves to search for Barbara!
As Stephen dazzles the debutantes with his easy manners, good humor, and demonstrations of delectable kissing—all in his brother’s name—how will he explain himself when one of those young ladies turns out to be one he wants?
