Lady Lisabeth Montague is grateful to set aside mourning for her late husband.

Norton wishes her to tutor his own cousin Tristan Radcliffe, a marquess, in the ways of the ton. But Lord Radcliffe is no young boy.

It is a most peculiar feeling, one he has seldom known before. Kind but strict, Lisabeth helps him not only with the ways of the Polite World, but to walk again.
