In 1838, a time when women are legal property of their fathers, husbands, and guardians, seventeen-year-old Julia Elliston, orphaned and unmarried, finds herself at the mercy of an anonymous guardian who plans to establish her as a servant in far-off Scotland. With two months to devise a better plan, Julia's first choice to marry her childhood sweetheart is denied. But when a titled dowager offers to introduce Julia into society, a realm of possibilities opens. However, treachery and deception are as much a part of Victorian society as titles and decorum, and Julia quickly discovers her present is deeply entangled with her mother's mysterious past. Before she knows what's happening, Julia finds herself a pawn in a deadly game between two of the country's most powerful men. With no laws to protect her, she must unravel the secrets on her own. But sometimes truth is elusive and knowledge is deadly.

Fast paced account. If you like Regency fiction, you will like it. If you like Christian Fiction, you will like it as well since the content doesn't goo any further than kissing :)
