The lovely Angelique Graham knows her strengths—and patience is not one of them. So instead of waiting nine months to wed her beloved Simon, as per her overprotective parents' edict, Angelique decides to use Simon's cousin, the dashing Lord Faring—rake of all rakes—who has just returned from war, to throw her parents into a panic.
Though Angelique has plotted and planned every move, it seems that love has a different plan. When the game playing gets serious, will Angelique be able to resist the charms of Lord Faring? And once she discovers the man behind the legend, will she even want to?
