Disappointed in love and in friendship, Miss Lydia Dean wants nothing more than to retreat from Society. Unfortunately, her fortune-hunting mama is determined to see Lydia in the center of every ballroom, flirting her way to the Match of the Season. And when Lydia suddenly finds herself head-over-heels in love, it is with a most unsuitable suitor: the horse-mad Peregrin Fawkes. It isn't just that he's untitled and unwealthy -- she's terrified of horses.
An Honorable nobody like Mr. Fawkes had no business even glancing at the Dean heiress, and well he knew it. He meant to concentrate on his horses, and his secret hope to win the Epsom Derby. But fate -- and the irrepressible Lady Grainne Archwood -- keep pushing them into one another's arms, until they finally seem to tempt fortune too many times.
From London's glittering ball-rooms to the fabled gallops of Epsom Downs, The Honorable Nobody weaves an enchanting tale of a love that conquers all.
