There's a war going on! Between Ariana Forsythe's heart and head when she falls in love with the wrong man.
When the devout Miss Forsythe arrives at her wealthy aunt's London townhouse, she expects to broaden her education. But it's "the season" known as the marriage mart, and her aunt has other ideas. Thrust into the world of the upper crust, an innocent blunder forces Ariana to team with the darkly handsome but taciturn Phillip Mornay, called the Paragon to clear her name.
Ariana can trust God's hand in her life, but can she resist Mr. Mornay's increasing claim on her heart? When she finds herself betrothed to him, she is faced with a terrible choice. And she must make it soon--before the season ends!
“A really nice surprise!”

“The author's command of period detail is impressive, evident in material details but also in dialogue. The theology is also period authentic. The novel even contains a glossary to help non-Regencyphiles get up to speed about the difference between ladies pelisses and spencers... on the whole it's a tasty confection.”
“Beautifully written story, fast-paced and exciting from cover to cover. One of the best stories I have read!”
“In the vein of Jane Austen, Burkard weaves a delightful world, rich with detail.”
