A Prequel Novella
Miles Whitely is a shameless flirt with a wicked reputation for debauching innocents. Devilishly handsome, he charms his way through life finding amusement in nearly everything while leaving a trail of ruined young women behind him.
Hannah Walpole was sent to England for a traditional debut; something she wasn't going to get while traveling with her parents across the African continent. She realizes quickly enough that it is a wasted effort. She simply does not fit in with English high society.
Miles admires Hannah's adventurous spirit and cool composure, and when the young lady declares she cannot be seduced, Miles eagerly accepts her unwitting challenge. But Hannah has no intention of becoming another victim of his striking gaze or honeyed flattery.
Does Lord Whitely have something more than seduction in mind, or is he truly the cad everyone says he is?
