Beautiful Polly Marsh sets her sights on a Duke—and when the dashing Lord Peter begins to show her attention, she believes his love is real. But Polly is a commoner—and Peter’s family never cease to remind her of it. Still, Polly is determined to win her handsome nobleman’s heart—at any cost.
She was a bewitching young girl, that pretty Polly Marsh, and she knew it. She also knew that beauty could be her passport into the castles where she had always known she belonged. So she set her sights for a duke and joined the firm of Westerman’s as a stenographer. Surely one of that noble family would notice her and then all of her dreams would come true! The trouble with Pretty Polly Marsh was that she just didn’t know her place. But others did… and were only too happy to remind her that dashing Lord Peter was merely playing at love when he appeared to be paying her court. The duchess was beside herself. Peter’s brother, the starchy Marquis of Wollerton, was desperate to pry Peter from Polly’s side. But Polly was determined to have Peter… and her dream. Peter wouldn’t betray her… would he?
