Miss Phillipa Stanhope-Fredericks is a darling of the London Ton - well-born, high-spirited and beautiful. She is also determined to find out why her little brother died so mysteriously at school, no matter what it might cost her personally.
Geraint Catton, new history master at St. Gregory’s School for Boys, knows there is something odd about the new scullery maid. She is too beautiful to be a lower servant and her good breeding is unmistakable no matter how she tries to hide it.
Sparks fly between them, even as the evil at the school becomes obvious. Little do they know that their lives are at risk, or that the misconceptions they hold about each other could be more dangerous than the villain who stalks them.
The love that blossomed at St. Gregory’s faces its greatest challenge in the scheming and scandal-loving London Ton, where the secrets that had brought them together would begin to tear them apart.
