Constance (Pixie to her friends) has answered her friend (Virginia's) request to visit her in London for the season. She only means to stay a short time as she is supposed to be getting married in a month. Once there she is approached by her mother's man of affairs with the news that her family is very deeply in debt with no way of paying. Her ex guardian, Virginia's brother Jack, the Marquess, steps in and shields her from this and other problems. Their relationship has become tangled and neither knows what they want. Jack is a consummate rake with no intention of marrying. Pixie is always at loggerheads with him and doesn't realise that her feelings have evolved. With a rival determined to become a marchioness, things get nasty. Although she has cried off from her engagement, her ex fiance doesn't want to take no for an answer which is puzzling. A nice little Regency Romance for readers who don't mind a little spice in their romance.
