Peter Everdean, the Earl of Clifton, had returned from the Peninsula a changed man. He tried to marry his eighteen year old sister, Elizabeth, off to an extremely elderly Duke. Later, when the Duke tried to rape her, Lady Elizabeth hit him with a chamberpot and killed him. In fear, she fled to Italy to be with her best friend who happened to be a famous artist, Mrs. Georgina Beaumont.
Two years had past since Peter covered the killing for Elizabeth's sake. Two years that Peter suffered for how he had treated Elizabeth without ever telling her why. He finally had a lead on where she was! He wanted her brought home so he could make it all up to her. When Peter ran into Nicholas, he felt as though God had smiled upon him.
Sir Nicholas Hollingsworth had been in the same regiment as Peter during the war in Spain. Peter had saved his life! So Nick agreed to help Peter locate his sister and return her. However, when Nick located her, he felt drawn to her. Apt description, since Elizabeth was an artist! She pretended to be the sister of Georgina. To keep close, Nick took the available position of secretary to be near Elizabeth. They fell in love and all was right with the world, until Peter showed up!
