Growing up in far-off India, wealthy young heiress Lady Victoria Arbuthnot is accustomed to handling her own affairs. But in her sixteenth year, Vicky is unceremoniously shipped off to London to find a husband. She may be in a strange new city, but Vicky knows one thing: her own mind. And she has decided that handsome, worldly Hugo Rothschild will suit her needs admirably in the matrimonial department.
Lady Victoria Arbuthnot has always done exactly what she wants. So she's delighted when she bags drop-dead-gorgeous Lord Malfrey before she's even got off the boat from India. But then a dashing young sea captain starts spreading stories about her man. Could it be that Vicky's happy-ever-after with Lord M. might not be so happy after all?
