A young lady’s reputation is everything in the eyes of the haut ton. But how will she catch a husband if she loses it?

Shy, bookish Sophie Brightwell is expected to make an advantageous match to improve her family’s fortunes. The stakes are certainly high: if she doesn’t, she’ll be pressured to marry an odious man her stepfather is in debt to. However, Sophie’s plans to make a spectacular debut go horribly awry when she and her three closest friends are expelled from a young ladies’ academy for conduct unbecoming. Since Almack’s and the who’s who of society will be sure to close their doors on these disgraced debutantes, they determine that unconventional means need to be employed in the husband-hunting market. Rakehells—the bad boys of the ton—might just be the only men willing to overlook a young lady’s besmirched reputation. But how does one catch a rake?

Sophie’s head has already been turned by one particular rake—Nate Hastings, the devil-may-care Viscount Malverne. But not only is he not the marrying kind, he’s the older brother of her best friend, fellow disgraced debutante Lady Charlotte. When a terribly foxed Nate accidentally ends up in Sophie’s guest bed one night, thus compromising her, Charlotte strikes a wicked bargain: in order to avoid a scandal and the parson’s mousetrap, Nate must help Sophie snare a husband. But as Nate fulfills his obligation and begins to instruct the lovely Sophie in the art of luring rakes, he soon finds he’s battling his own fierce attraction…except he doesn’t have a heart to give away, and Sophie won’t settle for anything less than a love match.
