Dr. Douglas Farrell turns to the matchmaking service in the Mayfair Lady broadsheet in his quest for a wife. He is interviewed by a petite, veiled figure with the most atrocious fake French accent he has ever heard.

Chastity Duncan looks through her veil and sees a tall, handsome, muscular man with a lilting Scottish burr. Chastity is appalled by Douglas' cold requirements for a wife: a rich, socially established female able to develop his medical practice.

But when she and her sisters find him a prospective mate, Douglas realizes he is more intrigued by the sharp-witted and even sharper-tongued Chastity. Her opinion of him changes, meanwhile, when she discovers his devotion to caring for the poor.

Chastity knows the liaison they have will be short-lived if he ever discovers she is the lady with the French accent. The last of Feather's trilogy plays out to perfection with a cast of remarkable characters, a fast-paced plot and sensuality. A compelling read that will more than satisfy Feather's fans.
