August Faulkner never expected to inherit the title of Duke of Holloway. He kept up a rake’s reputation, while accumulating businesses and breaking them apart to sell — becoming a very wealthy man in the process. Now he wants the bankrupt import business owned by Clara Hayward. Clara loves being headmistress of an esteemed finishing school where young ladies learn to think, not just dance. When August learns his sister has enrolled in an exclusive summer program run by Clara, he decides to follow her — not just to find out what she is learning, but to see if Clara will sell the company. August is surprised by Clara. She is intelligent, funny and a woman who ignites his deepest passions. Soon he wonders what he wants for his sister, himself and Clara — is it wealth or love?
