    After an evening dinner with renowned French ballet dancer and beauty, Nicole de Prêt, handsome young buck about town, the Marquis of Sarne, is stirred from a deep sleep to realise that he has been drugged and then rendered unconscious.
     
    And he is in a strange bed in a strange house somewhere in London.
     
    Far worse though is the revelation that in his stupor someone has married him to some young servant girl he does not even know by his bitter enemy, Lord Kirkhampton.
     
    To avoid the likely scandal and humiliation that his predicament will bring him, he decides to take his ‘bride’ to his house in Grosvenor Square and there to arrange a divorce as best he can.
     
    But soon he realises that this girl was not a willing participant in Lord Kirkhampton’s deceitful trick nor is she the plain servant girl he had assumed at first.
     
    In fact Romana Wardell is startlingly beautiful and attractive, remarkably intelligent and every bit as appalled by their situation as he is.
     
    Then the more that the reluctant newlyweds become acquainted, the less the urgency they feel to put this forced ‘marriage’ to an early end.
     
    Perhaps after all she has the makings of a Marchioness of Sarne!
