Siam was no place for a proper young English lady to travel unchaperoned. But when a vicious rumor destroys her good name, Esme Montrose flees her father’s Bangkok home rather than salvage her reputation by marrying a man she loathes.
Running from the clutches of her hated fiance, she meets the dashing Lord Ian Winthrop. And though she would gladly linger in his arms, Winthrop wants nothing to do with a girl of her tawdry reputation. Her happiness imperiled, Esme has to prove she isn’t a shameless doxy—or she will lose the only man she has ever loved.
