With the draft and rewrites of Pru’s book in to her editor (and a tentative title, A MOST UNSUITABLE MATCH) Julia is now working on Temper’s story. Unlike Prudence, who suppresses her feelings and attempts to be the “model” young lady to overcome the infamy of association with their scandalous mother,Temperance is defiant, ready to launch herself into the teeth of Society’s disapproval. Until her brother’s long-time family friend, Gifford Newell, finds her an unlikely champion in Lady Sayleford, his godmother and great-aunt of Maggie (heroine of FORBIDDEN NIGHTS WITH THE VISCOUNT.) Temper wants to get a (failing) presentation out of the way so she can persuade her father to give her the money to travel the world. But intrigue, the jealousy of a rival–and love–have other plans for her!
