The Honourable Phoebe Pemberton is blessed with beauty, wit and wealth, but she has one disadvantage that annuls it all: Phoebe is the daughter of the late, disgraceful Lord Pemberton and Harriet Buckley. For years society has shunned the whole Pemberton family.
Early in childhood, Phoebe learns to escape her motherâ€™s iron-fisted determination to teach her the family business of wringing profits from the mills. She dreams of running away, and, when she learns of her motherâ€™s plans to offer her hand in marriage as part of a business transaction, she calls on her friend Toby Grantham for help.
But Harrietâ€™s vengeful fury is aroused, leaving Phoebe tangled in an unexpectedly dark and desperate venture.
