Abstract:

"Governess Moira Greenwood's beautiful young charge, Perdita Brodie, is a high-spirited chit. Indeed, she rebels against her stepmama's choice of mate and manages to get Moira and herself positions in a not-quite-shabby travelling acting troupe. While Moira cooks, her lovely cousin sings, attracting the very insistent attentions of the cold, handsome rakehell Lord Stornaway - who takes the pair for lightskirts! Although Moira explains the truth, the self-satisfied lord believes not a word, he's positive the two are ladies of ill repute. Moira finds him the most rude, uncivil of men and tells him so. Still, there is something about him she can't quite define that is not completely loathsome..." --B.cover.
