Cedric Loring, the Earl of Montague, has been an honorary member of the Bexley-Smythe family for years. He's always had a special, if sometimes strained, bond with Georgie. But when her name ends up in the betting book at White's before she's even made her debut, he knows no one can protect her quite like he can. If only she'd stop chasing after the very gentleman who could single-handedly see to her ruin.
Lady Georgianna Bexley-Smythe has the uncanny ability to remember nearly everything she's ever read, and thus knows everything about almost everything. But as knowledge and experience are not interchangeable, she intends to make her first season one of adventure. What could be more adventurous than seeing London from Lord Haworth's gas balloon? Now she must avoid Monty long enough to make Haworth's acquaintance and begin an airborne adventure.
