Daphne's visit to her Aunt Effie was allowed with much misgiving. For Effie had once been the toast of London. Her beauty attracted men of all kinds - husbands, sons, brothers, fathers. Her first marriage ended in a scandalous divorce and the notoriety forced her to flee.
Now Effie planned to published memoirs and half of London was turning pale with terror. Everyone wanted to buy her silence - and suddenly she was being courted by the very people who had shunned her.
As for Daphne, when she crossed swords with a certain young duke who claimed Daphne and Effie were blackmailing his family, she had no inkling of what was in store.
