Scandal follows Rose Barclay, young widow of the Duke of Southdown, wherever she goes.

And now there is even more talk as the legitimacy of the marriage is being contested by the duke's son and heir.

Reginald Mason is wealthy, refined, and, by all accounts, a gentleman. However, he is not a gentleman by birth, a factor that pains him and his father, Bernard Mason, within the Regency society that upholds station over all else. That is, until an opportunity for social advancement arises, namely, Lady Annabelle Ashton.
