Lady Christine Lockhart was not well liked among the 1728 Londonís elite. They frowned upon her behavior because she did not always say or do what was deemed appropriate for a titled lady. When Christine discovered the ground rules of a cruel wager, she resolved never to marry.

Andrew Chandler, Duke of Kenilworth, saw a very different Christine Lockhart when he became part of her circle of friends. Then one night, he overheard a plot to murder her. His plan to save her was simple, yet convincing her of it proved to be a challenge.

But the most difficult challenge both Andrew and Christine had to face was the killerís deadly determination to win.

An excerpt from Chapter 3:
As the small group talked, Andrew watched from his seat across the span of the theatre. He could not believe that in thinking of Christine and her cough, he would see her out again.
"Who do you see, Andrew?" Marian asked and leaned towards him.
"Richard and Abby are over there with the Lockharts," he replied leaning slightly away from her.
"The Lockharts? What on earth are they doing out?" she said scornfully.
"Perhaps they want to see the play as well, Marian."
"They are still in mourning, for pity's sake. Just another example of Christine Lockhart's disdain for proper decorum," Marian scoffed.
Andrew turned slowly to face his companion and asked tightly, "Christine Lockhart's disdain? What of Lady Margaret and Lady Caroline Huntington?"
"I am sure Lady Margaret has had her hands full with trying to instill any proper behavior in that child. I mean, what can one expect from a daughter of sea captain?" Marian replied in obvious condemnation.
Andrew stared at her for a long moment that Marian glanced at him uneasily. "Why do you ladies detest her so?" he asked.
"Detest her? Andrew, that is such an distasteful word," Marian cooed.
"Very well, shall we try criticize?" he asked in a tone that made Marian look at him for a long moment.
"Really Andrew, how can one expect proper etiquette and grace from a homely country maid?"
Andrew's laugh was harsh to Marian's ears and she bristled at the subtle rebuke. "You cannot seriously believe that she could become a lady of high fashion and delicate grace?" she asked in marked disbelief.
"That is not something a woman is born with, Marian. It is taught," Andrew replied, matching her haughty tone.
