Ophelia Reid
is an incomparable beauty with an incorrigible nature. Having purposefully wrecked her carefully arranged marriage to an utterly suitable marquis, she flees to London, determined to choose her own wealthy husband. On the journey there, she meets Raphael Locke, the most desired young lord in England.

Raphael is determined to prove to his friends that Ophelia is more than just a vacuous beauty and whisks her off to his country estate. But as the days pass, and Ophelia's true nature emerges, Raphael finds himself growing more and more attracted to her.

When the marriage proposals begin to flood in, from all sorts of eligible suitors, Raphael is forced to face the fact that he may well have fallen in love with Ophelia himself...
