Sebastian Griffin, Duke of Melbourne, is not pleased when the Prince Regent appoints him as cultural liaison to a tiny, new kingdom. Sebastian is not entirely convinced that this kingdom is as great as its ruler claims it is - or if the kingdom actually exists! And the fact that Princess Josephina intrigues him far more than he wished makes the situation all the more complicated. Reluctant to lose Prinny's favour, but unwilling to allow England to be taken in, Sebastian settles on the only plan that makes sense: he will seduce the truth out of "the princess." But the attraction between Josephina and Sebastian is far more intense than either expected. And just when they are coming to accept their feelings, a scandal breaks. Now, the couple is in a race against time to prevent disaster and will be forced to make some difficult choices if they plan to hold on to this chance at love.
