Desperation leads to a scandalous masquerade
For Miss Cassandra Weston there is only one escape route from an appalling arranged marriage – flight to Godmama in London. But Godmama is out of the country…
Nicholas, Earl of Lydford, her son, is about to leave on a Grand Tour, starting in Paris.
Take one very reluctant nobleman, a valet with a broken leg, a ferocious great aunt – and Cassandra becomes Cass the valet en route to Paris.
Can Cassie and Nicholas safely negotiate weeks of deception, misunderstanding and desire, lightly spiced with raging rivers, blood-thirsty bandits and exotic Venetian courtesans?
And can their growing love survive Miss Weston’s most scandalous masquerade of all?
A comprehensively revised version of the novel of the same name by Francesca Shaw, originally published by Mills & Boon in 1994.
