"A woman running a prestigious London auction house? Preposterous! But that is exactly what Emma Fairbourne intends to do after her father dies and leaves her the reins of this fabulous enterprise. Of course, she is not addlepated enough to do this openly and scare away her wealthy collectors. So she and her friend concoct a deception, intending to hire a handsome and charming front man who will do her bidding. All would have proceeded smoothly--if it weren't for the maddening interference of Darius, the arrogant Earl of Southwaite, who has been her father's 'silent partner' and now shares ownership of Fairbourne's. An earl, of course, has no interest in running an auction house--and Darius is certainly not interested in allowing the lovely Miss Fairbourne to run it either, her ludicrous scheme notwithstanding. Clearly the business must be sold. But the headstrong Emma is like no other lady he has ever encountered, refusing to follow his dictates. Holding his temper in check, Darius decides to attack on a different front. There is another way to achieve her surrender, one far more pleasurable for both of them"--Publisher.… (mere)

Emma is mourning the death of her father, running an auction house in his stead and trying to find her missing brother all on her own. Society frowns on women in authority so Emma must hide behind males to get her job done. Darius, the arrogant Earl of Southwaite discloses that he is half owner of the auction home so Emma has yet another male from whom she must hide. Emma can see no future for an average looking working woman in the life of an Earl so she strives on her own until his help becomes needed very badly. Smuggling, treason, blackmail are all woven into the story as these two distant classes and people find a way to meet in the middle. ( )

However, her silent partner, the Duke of Southwaite, wants to liquidate the business before his involvement in trade becomes public knowledge. As the two spar, other forces including smugglers and French spies complicate their relationship. Is Robert still alive and can Emma save him? ( )

The final sale at Fairbourne’s auction house proved to be a sad affair, and not only because the proprietor had recently fallen to his death while strolling along a cliff walk in Kent. It was also, from the viewpoint of collectors, comprised of very minor works, and hardly worthy of the reputation for selectivity that Maurice Fairbourne had built for his establishment.
