Abandoned at the altar, Max, Lord Belvedere believes he's evaded family obligation in favour of a life of adventuring in Africa. But his ailing Aunt Euphemia has other ideas.
When Max finds himself in the delightfully diverting arms of Violet Lilywhite while visiting London's most prestigious House of Assignation, he happens upon the perfect plan. A sham wedding to a 'penniless shop girl' should fulfil Aunt Euphemia's romantic dreams without losing him his newfound liberty.
Violet agrees to the deception with no hesitation. Lord Belvedere is certainly the most charming and surprising of all her male consorts but she has no illusions about a shared future. She wants only to escape the clutches of infamous Madame Chambon.
The plan appears perfect until Max and Violet find themselves falling in love.
Can Max give up his plans for freedom in an exciting new land? Or is freedom to be found in the arms of the woman he loves?
