Duncan Fairchild, Earl of Wakeford, was courting Katherine, Baroness of Gilfallen, and a new sensation of the season. But – heaven help him – the woman he couldn't forget was Willie, the baroness's gamine companion who, he was certain, has stolen his watch! Yet here he was, having unthinkable fantasies about the wee wily beauty named "Willie," who had picked his pocket, befuddled hits wits, and totally charmed his heart.
Willie knew that Lord Wakeford believed her to be a common, garden-variety thief. She also knew who the true culprit was, her hands were tied . . . until she attempted to return Wakeford's watch. Suddenly, she was confronted by the handsome nobleman himself. Suddenly, she was in his arms, and being soundly kissed. Wakeford vowed to reform her, but would he defy the ton to give Willie what they both really desired: his hand – in marriage?
