Rowan, a noble lady, felt uneasy. Her friend Penelope, who was so shy it hurt, was worried about being forced to marry an earl who had been accused of killing his wife.

Rowan immediately put her plan into action, but just as quickly she ran into a snag—Lucas, a playboy and the earl's servant. He had only just met Rowan and had already tried to kiss her!
