Book #2 in The School of Sophistication series.
After three failed seasons, Julia Montford is finally seeing her freedom on the horizon, despite the Viscount Montford's insistence that she find a husband. No amount of stolen kisses in London gardens has convinced her that she's found the magic of love -- not until she wagers against her childhood friend, Benjamin Burton, an experienced British cavalry captain with deep blue eyes and a pair of lips that sends her plans toppling over like a pile of syllabub. But when caught in an embrace, parson's mousetrap threatens, forcing Julia and Ben into a false courtship. Well, maybe false in Julia's eyes, but Ben has other plans that involve wooing and wedding Julia with the help of the intrepid duo, Lady Caro and the Dowager Lady Rutherford.
