Little does Nick--one of the greatest antiquarians in Britain--know that instead of escaping women, his trip North will land him at the country estate of the entirely uncommon, thoroughly unsettling Lady Isabel Townsend.§While a houseful of female servants consider the arrival of this "paragon of manhood" to be extraordinarily entertaining, Isabel has no time for their games...her secrets are too many and too complicated for there to be room in her life for a man--but a dead father, a missing guardian of the estate, and no money to speak of makes the handsome antiquarian the answer to all her problems.
