Lady Amelia Plume has her share of admirers, and she doesn't return their affections. She's smart and strong and longs for adventure. She has no time for the average fortune hunter.
When she meets an American, Major Lucas Winter, she meets her match. He's a strapping soldier with an intriguing agenda, which doesn't include marrying her for her money. The problem? He's investigating her stepmother and how she amassed her fortune.
Adventure, sex, and witty Regency banter ensue. Kind of long and sort of dumb, but a decent diversion.
