When Lady Gabriella Banning receives word that her half brother, the Earl of Wickham, has died on his tea plantation, she faces the reality that she and her younger sisters are suddenly penniless — unless she thinks fast. Arranging Claire’s London season, Gabby pretends that Marcus is still alive, just until Claire can marry a fabulously wealthy nobleman. But when a handsome gentleman arrives claiming to be Marcus, Gabby’s plan backfires. If she exposes this mysterious stranger’s deceit, she exposes her own. Bound by secrets and lies, Gabby and the roguish adventurer strike sparks — and soon London society is abuzz over the scandalous “siblings” who appear to be falling in love. . . .
