Regency Historical. This 4th installment of the Sydney Dovedale romances runs parallel to the events of Lady Mercy Danforthe Flirts with Scandal
, focusing on Mercy's maid, Molly Robbins. Molly's dream is to open a dress shop in London, designing gowns for the ton. Unfortunately, realizing her ambitions will require considerable capital. She invites wealthy nobleman (and notorious rake) Carver Danforthe, Earl of Everscham, to invest in her business. But despite a contract that stipulates "No Tomfoolery," Carver and Molly find themselves increasingly willing to ignore the fine print.
