After nearly five years of torment at the hands of society's worst gossips, Lady Phoebe Anson is finally making her escape, following her dream to author botany texts - even if she must pretend to be a man to do it. When her one-time friend, Lord Malcolm Gray, happens upon her at the Frost Fair and uncovers her plot, Phoebe refuses to let him ruin her life - again.
But Malcolm isn't the young fool he once was, though he knows he has much to atone for where Phoebe is concerned. And he has no intention of letting his "whirling dervish" get away this time....
This novella originally appeared in the 2016 limited edition historical romance novella duet, A Midwinter's Scandal, with Erin Knightley. The set is no longer available, but I highly recommend listening to Erin's complementary story, Once Jilted, Twice Shy, as well in order to enjoy the world to its fullest.
