One mischievous girl on a mission . . .
Sir Gareth Ludlow was a sought-after bachelor in London high society -- wealthy, noble, handsome . . . and brokenhearted since the death of his true love many years ago. Resigned to remarry, Sir Gareth solicits the hand of a woman he respects and admires -- Lady Hester Theale. But fate takes an impish turn when, on his way to ask for Lady Hester, Sir Gareth encounters a saucy young lady who identifies herself as "Amanda Smith."
Amanda is alone and unchaperoned, and her imaginative tales take on a life of their own, sweeping up Sir Gareth, Lady Hester and several other hapless victims in a series of unexpected adventures. And no one, especially Sir Gareth, will ever be the same again . . .
