Juliana Telford is not your average 19th-century young lady. She's much more interested in researching ladybugs than marriage, fashionable dresses or dances. When her father sends her to London for a season, she plans to secretly publish her research. Spencer Northam is not the average young gentleman of leisure he appears.

Spencer can finally focus, until he is tasked with observing Juliana's traveling companions...and Juliana herself.
