[Read by Lindy Nettleton]
An Edwardian love story by New York Times bestselling author Marion Chesney
Miss Marjorie Montmorency-James was lovely, young, and very impressionable. All these characteristics contrived to help her fall in love with a certain Lord Philip's picture when it appeared in the newspaper. Until the day she saw Lord Philip's photo, she had only fantasized about a mysterious lover whose shadowy features were never quite clear.
Now she had a real live nobleman to dream about.
Little did she suspect that she would soon meet Lord Philip in the flesh. How could she imagine such a thing? After all, what could justify a daughter of the middle class rubbing shoulders with the nobility?
Then suddenly that great day was upon her; she was to meet Lord Philip. But nothing turned out the way Marjorie expected it would. Love - and danger - lay waiting for Marjorie in London.

M. C. Beaton (aka Marion Chesney) has won international acclaim for her bestselling 'Hamish Macbeth' mysteries and the 'Agatha Raisin' mystery series. She is also the author of more than one hundred romance titles and a series of romantic suspense novels, the 'Edwardian Mystery' series. Born in Scotland, she now divides her time between Paris and the English Cotswolds.
Prolific author Chesney, who writes under many pseudonyms (Ann Fairfax, Helen Crampton, et al.), has created another exciting tale of romantic pursuits. Marjorie Montorency-James has lived 18 sheltered years with her aunt near London in the late 19th century. The attractive young woman fantasizes about life outside the walls of Haddon Commons, imagining gallant lords, festive balls, and exciting adventures. By chance and deceit, her aging aunt is convinced to take Marjorie to London for the Season. Handsome Lord Philip Cavendish becomes the object of the young woman's romantic dreams; her innocence and the meddling of some new acquaintances then lead Marjorie into some very unusual circumstances. Though initially a little slow-moving, the story picks up to become an enjoyable adventure in which everyone gets what--or who--they deserve. Appropriate for most large romance/historical fiction collections.
