Genre: Historical Romance

Simone is curious about Harrison, aka Harold, aka Harry, until she uncovers the truth of his charade. By then it's too late to back out. She's caught up in a courtesans' competition where the winner receives 1,000 pounds. Harry may be a master of disguise, but there's no way he can hide his attraction to Simone.
