Her mother told her not to be silly. That she did not have the sense God gave a goose. The other children called her Silly Sophie.
Used to a lifetime of neglect, Sophie is still shocked when her mother disowns her. Where is she to go in London, a city that is wholly new to her?
Fortunately, a chain of events dramatically changes her life. Sophie finds new friends and is reunited with her brother, the Earl of Nethercote. She also falls in love. But at heart she is still Silly Sophie. How can she compete against the alluring lady who has gentlemen falling over her?
Christopher, the Duke of Henderson has had enough of being pursued by women. When his lackey informs him that a young woman was found in his carriage house and claims to have lost her memory, he is incensed.
But when the frightened young woman in a dirt-stained gown is presented to him, he knows she is no conniving female. Babbling of kings and dukes, she is most likely missing a few marbles!
At first intrigued and then entranced by Sophie’s honest feelings, Christopher must guard his love from dangers unforeseen and from the scheming and vicious Lady Dorothea who is determined to become his duchess.
