She had been the prettiest--and most penniless--young lady at Miss Farringdon's Academy in Brighton. Befriending spoiled heiress Alayna Marchmont and telling her about a family scandal was a schoolgirl's naïve mistake. Now, Alayna has blackmailed Chelsea into agreeing to an utterly outrageous spend a dull month in the country with Alayna's elderly aunt, while pretending to be Alayna! Both girls are blond and of a similar size, besides Aunt Millicent is nearly blind.

The plan might have worked but for one unforeseen occurrence, the arrival of Aunt Millicent's nephew, Lord Rathbone, who unexpectedly comes to England to claim his bride, sight unseen. Rathbone is not disappointed with his "fiancée." As for Chelsea, she's developing a powerful tender for the handsome, albeit misled, nobleman. This affair of the heart could lead to disaster, unless a resourceful Brighton Beauty can find a way to stop a foolish masquerade without losing a handsome lord's love.
