Georgette Fortune has loved the same man for over two years now, but he does not even know she exists.
When the handsome Marquis of Onslow appears at a house party in her home, the crumbling Castle Fortune, he does not recognise her at all.
With six unmarried daughters to provide for, and in the hope of marriage settlements, Baron Fortune has invited guests to a home ill prepared for it. He hopes that young Lord Paxton, who has shown interest in his daughter Jocasta will finally offer for her. And while he is at it, he will introduce his other daughters to the company as well. It falls to Georgette to make all the arrangements, but she was not expecting to deal with her unrequited love, Onslow.
Georgette is largely ignored by her family, treated almost as a poor relation, but will Onlsow finally see her?
To add to her torture, the beautiful Miss Julia White has appeared, the woman Georgette was sure Onlsow loved. Another guest is Onslow's friend, Sir Justin Faulkes, who had once offered for Georgette himself and still shows his admiration.
With a full house of guests to see to, plus her wayward sisters to keep in line, Georgette will be busy. But as she and Onslow become closer, is this a torture or a delight?
