A reluctant debutante

Deirdre Wheaton doesn't mind being the lone ugly duckling among a flock of swans (her four beautiful sisters) until her mother insists she also have her London debut. Deirdre reluctantly agrees, but is far more interested in meeting celebrated poets and novelists than eligible bachelors. In fact, her deepest, most secret desire is to publish her own poetry someday . . . until she meets the dashing Marquis of Wrotham. Once Cupid's arrow strikes, Deirdre has a difficult time thinking about anything other than the handsome nobleman. Determined to give love, the poets' most exalted emotion, a fair try, she enlists a sister's help to transform herself into an elegant woman of fashion in order to catch Lord Wrotham's eye. Her plan is on the verge of succeeding when she learns that her intended apparently has an aversion to her first love--poetry! What to do?

A prize worth pursuing

Though long averse to matrimony, Edison Gates, Marquis of Wrotham must choose a bride for the succession to avoid having the title and estate fall to his feckless gamester cousin. In Miss Deirdre Wheaton, Lord Wrotham believes he has finally found a woman who unites beauty, breeding, humor and intellect. When she suddenly grows cool toward him, he is at a loss to explain it. Can he convince the lovely Miss Wheaton that he is her perfect mate after all?
