Emily Norton loves nothing more than losing herself within the pages of a good book. But at the moment, she instead finds herself facing that most dreadful rite of passage: the London Season. Her trepidation over formally entering Society is all-encompassing, until she stumbles upon an enigmatic gentleman digging up flowers in a hedgerow. Before she can learn his name or the reason for his unusual activity, however, she is whisked back into a carriage bound for London.Henry Buckland has a secret: he cannot discern the difference between certain colors. It’s a particularly difficult disability for the curator of natural history at the British Museum, but no more challenging than his repeated attempts to outmaneuver the machinations of the ton’s most notorious matchmaker. At a dinner party his parents are hosting, he receives unforeseen assistance in outwitting the persistent busy-body from an unexpected source: the intriguing young lady he met on the country lane. As Emily and Henry become formally acquainted, they discover a shared love of science and nature that make them ideally suited. Unfortunately, Henry is not alone in his admiration for the young woman. As the competition to woo Emily escalates, so, too, do tensions at the museum. When an unexpected danger threatens Henry’s livelihood—and life—it appears he may not have the chance to win Emily’s heart after all.
