Everybody said that Katie's only chance for survival in wicked London was to become a rich man's mistress. For what respectable man would marry the penniless daughter of a nobleman notorious for his bad debts? And hadn't the handsome Lord Linden taken a fancy to lovely, impetuous Katie?
But Katie had already fallen in love with the notorious libertine and knew Linden's reputation for tiring of his light o' love almost before he had bedded them...and she knew she could not endure that fate.
It took the intervention of an unscrupulous scoundrel and a wide old duchess to bring these lovers' tangled affairs to a happy conclusion.
