Moore spins an intriguing web of romance between a spider-obsessed aristocrat and a maidservant posing as
a noblewoman in this fourth book in her Kiss series. This book blends humor and romance with a twist of suspense, and each chapter begins an excerpt from Buggy's book about spiders or from the local gossip rag.

Buggy Bromwell is traveling with a beautiful young woman when their coach is in an accident. He believes the woman is Lady Eleanor Springford, who's running away from an arranged marriage, and invites her to stay at his parents' estate until she can work out her situation.

Buggy and "Eleanor" are strongly attracted to each other, but "Eleanor" is really Nell Springley, an impoverished maidservant running away from her former employer, who tried to rape her. She's certain Buggy will no longer love her when he finds out her secret. Buggy has no plans to marry, since he's determined to find funding for another expedition, and even if he did, he wouldn't want to leave his wife for years at a time while he travels the world.
