'No debutante was ever more desperate to escape the clutches of a detestable suitor than Fanny Brightwell but will she find the burning kisses of her secret lover worth the price?
'With just weeks before the end of the Season, London's most daring debutante Miss Fanny Brightwell must contract a brilliant match or face the consequences-marriage to the pestilential Lord Slyther.
