Lady Caroline Ashford collected husbands like some women collected Dresden china, but over the years each had died an early death.  Was she cursed?  But there was one man who eluded her, by her own choice, many years ago.  A pragmatic woman and knowing that life moves on, she'd found husbands, good men whom she'd  loved well.  Er, perhaps too well?   Now as she and her business partner, the Dowager Lady Rutherford, settle into middle age and slow their pace a bit, a surprise awaits her.  A tall, handsome, tawny-haired Frenchman from her past arrives on her doorstep without warning, sending her into a dead faint.

As the Duke of Huntington's home becomes filled to the rafters with family, neighbors and guests for a midwinter house party, high jinx and seductions abound.    It's enough to make a woman's head spin -- and Lady Caro's head does spin, as well as her heart, despite her best intentions not to fall in love and
threaten a fourth's man's life, for goodness sake.  As a matter of fact, no one escapes this midwinter madness that sweeps through Huntington Hall.

The final book of The School for Sophistication series brings many of the characters from previous romances together once again in a rollicking, romantic story that will warm your heart and certainly bring forth a chuckle or two.
