When his decrepit grandfather commands him to search for a long-lost female cousin, Evelyn Dresdenham, the notorious Marquis of Denver, is very much disinclined to oblige. One night, he unwittingly saves a young lady masquerading herself as a man from trouble, and eventually strikes a bargain with her: one that presents him a very cunning solution to his predicament.

Thus, Evelyn induces the orphan Georgie Kentsville to pretend as the cousin he is supposed to be looking for. At first reluctant, Georgie finally agrees and gradually finds herself caught between family intrigues and the allures of High Society. And as she transforms from an impudent, urchin-like girl to a very elegant young lady under his charge, the Marquis is very much pleased indeed... but he is little prepared for the ultimate consequence of his own scheme.

Such is the case with spoiled rotten children. Ungrateful beasts

I have a feeling  that she may be the cousin he's looking for.
I have only read the first chapter, but I am already in awe and fascination at how well phrased everything is! It is all very articulate! I love it! I wish to achieve a vast vocabulary as you have!

I am always enthralled by historical romance. ^_^  After I read this first chapter, I decided to put it in my reading list quickly.  I hope you would update this regularly because I'm already a fan. ^_^
