Felicity Beinfait has a problem. With no money to pay for her finishing school graduation, no dowry to attract a suitor and a tarnished lineage, it seems she will land in the gutters of London. Unwilling to face defeat she comes up with a plan to avenge her father and restore her family name. She can't seem to do anything right until she kidnaps the wrong brother and quickly finds herself unprepared for the task of holding one handsome, witty and unusual Duke hostage.
Lord William Carnduff has spent his life keeping his younger wastrel of a brother from ending up destitute and has little time for fancy balls and simpering ladies. He much prefers the quiet solitude of the family hunting lodge. His plans don't include a wife, until she smacks him over the head with a skillet.
Can a self-proclaimed chef and an admitted klutz mix up a batch of love, or will someone get burned before it is all done?
