Darius Carsington is a man gifted with phenomenal intelligence and a magnificent form. He is a rake as well as a scholar but he exhibits no truly deep feelings. Reason and logic guide his every action. He dallies with courtesans and loose women because reason says he needs an outlet for his desires. The endless crop of marriage minded young ladies do nothing for him. But when he meets the stunning proper Lady Charlotte Hayward, only daughter of the Earl of Lithby, Darius is intrigued by her less than proper reaction to him. Logic tells him that there is a tempting chink in her genteel disguise one that no one else has ever noticed.

In her youth she learned a hard lesson about trust and temptation and she plans to never make the same mistake again. She is everything she ought to be and the temptation of Darius threatens to entice her away from it all.
