Prudence Wemberly is desperate. Her reputation has been damaged by a cowardly suitor and her overbearing father will disown her when he finds out about it. She musters her courage and flees to the house of the most notorious courtesan in London. If she's ruined, why not become a courtesan herself and have a little fun for a change? It sounds like a reasonable idea—after she has her third glass of sherry.

Charles Hatterly only wants to pursue his passion for ornithology, but his family expects him to marry and manage the family estates. He needs to find a well-behaved girl who will be content to marry him—and then leave him alone.

For a gentleman scientist in need of a wife and a ruined miss in need of a future, there is an obvious solution. If Prudence and Charles can make it to the altar despite their meddling families, unscrupulous rakes and the brewing scandal that has the ton talking, they just might find more than they bargained for. Can true love bloom amid the catastrophes that arise from compromising Prudence?

Edwina Tolliver is the sister of noted botanist Sir Horace Tolliver. More than anything, the Tolliver family fortunes rest upon securing sponsorship of her brother's scientific expedition. The last thing she expects, or needs, is to be so helplessly attracted to their sponsor's secretary, Mr. Brooking.

Graham Hatterly is fond of pranks. As far as he's concerned, life is about having a good time. When his secretary, Mr. Brooking suddenly becomes ill on the eve of traveling to investigate a business proposal, this younger son thinks it will be a lark go in his secretary's place. The last thing he expects is to meet the woman of his dreams.

Trapped in the Cotswolds by a flood, there is no escape from the temptations and complications that arise from Graham's game of becoming Mr. Brooking.
