Miss Amelia Locke dreams of traveling but contents herself with seeing the world through books. At a Christmas party, a mystery game promises a trip to Greece to the pair of guests to first solve the puzzle. Confident her book smarts will finally work in her favor, Amelia is determined to win. The only person in her way is her rakish partner.
Lord Orion Sudbury, a recently reformed rake, knows that the quiet woman in the drab dress hides a fierce personality. He has not seen her since a night long ago that they have both kept secret.
Together again, their personalities clash and the closer they get to winning the game, the more Amelia worries that a rake's curiosity will lead to her ruin.
