Tristan St. Aubyn, the Earl of Weybourne, is a driven man. Haunted by the bad decisions he made in his youth, his life is all about work … working to restore his fortunes, working to rebuild the herd of unique racehorses that were his late father’s legacy, working to forget just how lonely he really is. Lord Weybourne isn’t looking for a wife, but when a saucy young lady dressed as a lad finds her way into his stable and charms the most irascible colt in the barn, Tristan can’t help but be intrigued… until she flees, frightened of discovery.
The Honourable Miss Letitia Ponsonby comes from a family of seafarers but for her, freedom is found on the back of a horse. She has no desire to wed the dreadful suitor her mother has chosen for her, ready and waiting at Lady Weston’s Christmastide house party. All that’s needed is the perfect scandal to deter him. But when Letitia finds not the abominable Homer Trout waiting for her at the house party but Lord Weybourne himself, the very desire they each feel for the other is all that is needed to create that perfect scandal.
