What happens when the daughter of an earl breaks the rules?
Felicity Brightley is the most genteel of ladies. Raised to marry the Earl of Westerley, she's never failed to follow the dictates of society. Doing so, she'd been promised, ensured lifelong security and happiness. When her future is shattered, however, she decides it's time she tests those rules—perhaps make up a few of her own.
Viscount Manningham-Tissinton (Mantis) isn't looking for a wife—especially not a lady considered a diamond of the first water. So when he stumbles upon Felicity, devastated by the betrayal at the hands of one of Manti's closest friends, he takes it upon himself to comfort her. With a single kiss, and then another—until a storm of passion ignites between them—a storm that threatens to land them both in scandal.
