Belladonna has developed a well honed since of propriety. She wears it like a shield of ice whenever she must interact with people outside her home. No one has ever questioned it and society has let her establish her comfortable place as a wall flower.
Then George Livery comes along. The fourth son of an Earl has built his own wealth with his two hands. He's never had a problem getting the attention of eligible women. When Belladonna does the unthinkable and walks away from him in the middle of a dance he becomes infatuated with her. The only problem is making Bella see that he can be worth taking a chance.
