Whose secret is more scandalous -- his or hers?
Sought after by all the ladies, Thomas Flander, the darkly handsome Duke of Ravensfield, is never far from the whirl of London society. All of that changes, though, when the duke discovers his fortune has been squandered away and he must devise a plan to save his legacy. The only problem is he must stay at his country estate and his absence has tongues wagging all around town.
Only one woman, the beautiful, tempestuous Lynnette Overton, is bold enough to find out what's keeping the duke away. Intent on winning a bet to uncover the secret behind the duke's withdrawal, Lynnette, who has something to hide herself, concocts a plan to install herself in the duke's country estate...and lure him into her bed. But can Lynnette expose the duke's secret and still win his love?
