Rafe has always been infuriated by Imogen, Lady Maitland, the always arrogant, always sharp-tongued sister had been widowed just a year earlier. Though she feels she isn't ready for marriage just yet, she would like to take a lover, and who better than Rafe's newly found illegitimate brother, Gabe? Not only did he look like Rafe, but he wasn't perpetually drunk either. What else could she want?

Everything seems to be going well, but Rafe decides that he can't allow Imogen to consort with his brother, so he'll masquerade as him until Imogen realizes that she is playing this game with Rafe.
