After the tragic death of her parents in a carriage accident, orphaned Pandora was taken in by her uncle, the Bishop of Winchester. One day, she is horrified to overhear that he plans to marry her off to his Chaplin, the Honourable Prosper Witheridge.
Certain she can't change her uncle's mind, Pandora decides to try and repulse Witheridge and drive him away. She invites herself to her stay with the decadent Earl of Chartwood. The Earl is notorious for his scandalous parties, with the kind of bohemian guests and raucous behaviour that would shock anyone from polite society.
Pandora is no different, she is both mortified and mesmerised by the charming Earl when she arrives at his stately home. But perhaps the wildly rich, bad-boy Duke is not quite as frivolous as everyone presumes and maybe a little excitement is just what Pandora needs...
