Carina was alone in the world, unsure what the
future held, when a troupe of musicians called Bertie’s Beauties had an accident
outside her gates. Suddenly she was swept up in their fate as she took over
for their injured pianist.
Now part of the troupe, she goes to perform at the
Duke of Westbury’s castle, never suspecting the duke would turn out to be a young man she met many years before. To hide her identity, she allows him to
see her only when she is masked—which intrigues him to the point of making
advances. Horrified that he should consider her a woman of loose morals, Carina
flees the castle to become a full-time member of Bertie’s Beauties. If she cannot
find love, at least she can fulfill her gifts as a musician.
Knowing she can never marry the man she loves, she
agrees to marry Bertie, who has fallen in love with her, though he knows her
heart belongs to the duke. But the duke hasn’t gotten over her desertion, and
he’s determined to find her.
