The women behind the popular, scandalous periodical Mrs. Goode's Magazine for Misses, also known as Goode's Guide to Misconduct, are daring, witty, clever, and wise, just like their publication ... especially in romance. Serving as the advice columnist "Miss Busy B." for an often-subversive ladies' magazine is the perfect outlet for Daphne Burke's outspoken nature. But when she advises a young lady of the ton to break off her engagement to a notorious rake, the consequences take Daphne beyond the page and into her real life. Miles, Viscount Deveraux, sometimes known as "that devil Deveraux," needs a respectable bride by the end of the Season, and he's bet a fortune that he can get one. Now, his fiancée has not only changed her mind—but done it publicly, in a letter to London's most infamous magazine. With the stakes high and time short, it seems reasonable to him that the columnist responsible should come to his rescue and marry him instead. Fortunately for Miles, Daphne is eager to escape the pressures of the London marriage mart. She agrees to a courtship. But at the end of two weeks, she intends to turn him down in a big, splashy scandal that will ruin her reputation and set her free. There's just one shocking wrinkle: Who knew being ruined by a rake could be so much fun?
