A MOST UNORTHODOX DEBUT
Lady Mary Hope, known as Maidie, refuses to allow herself to be pushed into marriage with a man she dislikes. So she presents herself to Laurie, Viscount Delagarde, and asks him to sponsor her for a Season. Laurie is flabbergasted -- as a bachelor he is the least suitable person for such a task. But his aunt Hester has other ideas. When his household is suddenly inundated with women, Laurie knows he has to make a stand -- but will all be for naught when he spies the transformation of Maidie from a dowdy maid to a sparkling diamond?
