Sometimes scandal is worth more than its weight in gold.
Love was folly, in Prudence Wellbourne's innocence. Now well-coined, sophisticated and wiser, she can easily live without it. But the one man who holds the key to her stubborn heart calls that belief into question.
Fifteen years has done nothing to cool Argyle Clairmonte's desire for Prudence. His bold attempt to regain her love lands him in Newgate prison and the Bailey court. Only Prudence's public admission of the truth, despite the scandal it will bring, can save him from the bitter consequences of his foiled plans.
Is hindsight the cure for love's recklessness? Prudence must find an eloquent answer, or watch Argyle swing from The Tyburn Tree.
