Lady Georgina's Gordon's sisters have all married prominent dukes or earls, and much to her dismay and frustration, she expected to make an even better match. There is no shortage of suitors for the vivacious beauty, but Georgina refuses to marry a man who doesn't stir her urgent passion. Unfortunately her mother has already set her sights on Francis Russell, the powerful Duke of Bedford-a man who may be the most eligible bachelor in all of England but whose attraction completely eludes Georgina. Despite her staunchest efforts, an engagement with the Duke of Bedford may not be so easily avoided. Scandal is sure to erupt, however, because Georgina is having trouble denying her desire for another man- John Russell, the duke's dashing younger brother . . .
