A proper lady...and in improper lord!
Lady Mary Farren is a sensible, practical country girl. But on her long-awaited Grand Tour, she's determined to find adventure. She's thrilled when the chance purchase of an unusual painting draws her into a mystery...and brings her to the attention of a handsome stranger!
Lord Fitzgerald thought she was just another pampered British miss--until he was confronted by her keen intelligence. Knowing full well that an impoverished Irish peer was no match for a duke's daughter, John still couldn't tear himself away from the ravishing Lady Mary...or the painting, said to hold clues to a fortune in gold.
