Given the chance to live as the woman he's always known himself to be, David Drummond leaps at the opportunity to become Miss Isobel Munroe. But will the help of Isobel's friends and Lord Peter Fairfax, the man of her dreams, be enough to help her fool the ton--and also the man who wishes David dead?
For the whole of his life, Viscount David Drummond has been groomed to inherit the title Earl of Falkirk upon the death of his father. However, instead of enjoying the manly pursuits expected by his father, he finds his every waking moment is consumed with the belief that he should have been born a woman and not a man. For David, it is a desire to compelling to resist.
After being caught in a compromising position while dressed as a girl, David Drummond is cast out of his family home by his father. With just the clothes on his back and a few golden guineas in his pocket, he escapes to London. There, he hopes to seek out a new life when his trust comes to him on his twenty-first birthday.
Through a letter of introduction, Lady Olivia Hamilton, the Countess of Weybridge, is apprised of his secret. For particular reasons of her own, she resolves to help David become Miss Isobel Munroe, the woman he always felt meant to be. Willing to brave the scandal of discovery for a chance to be true to herself, Isobel becomes a reality, and with the help of Olivia and her friends, she begins her new life. She even finds the man of her dreams, Lord Peter Fairfax, a gentleman in need of a wife as special as she. Everything is coming together, or so it seems. But Isobel can't escape her past so easily, for someone is seeking David Drummond--someone who wants him dead.
