Annotation Isabella Leslie is an intelligent young woman, more interested in her family's shipping business than she is finding a suitor. But when her family arranges an undesirable marriage for her, she hatches a drastic plan: she will take up with London's most notorious rake, Dermott Ramsay, thus publicly "ruining" herself and making marriage an impossibility. Of course, Isabella never considers the possibility that she might really fall for Dermott.
Editors Note Determined to avoid marriage at all costs in order to her pursue her interest in the family shipping business, heiress Isabella Leslie decides to risk her reputation by seeking refuge in a brothel and by allowing London's most notorious rake, Dermott Ramsay, earl of Bathurst, to ruin her. Original.
Editors Note 2 The Tattler - April 1802 It wouldn't surprise you, gentle readers, to learn that Dermott Ramsay, the earl of Bathurst and favorite of all ladies, married or otherwise, has a new paramour. What may surprise you is her name. For she is none other than Isabella Leslie!  The same beauty of the sizable inheritance who prefers not the ton but books, maps, and the family shipping business.  You may wonder how a picture of innocence ended up in the arms of a libertine. Truth to tell, Isabella had to flee from her scheming relatives in the rain-soaked night and seek refuge in London's most infamous brothel. There, with the help of the madam, she devised an unorthodox plan to escape a dreaded marriage bed. She would simply have to become unmarriageable--even if it meant public ruin. And who better to utterly ruin her in a mere week than a handsome rake famous for seductive skills?  But gossip has it that Dermott may be developing a tendre for his temporary mistress. It makes for the most delicious speculation, does it not? For if it indeed is the case, what will happen when their week of pleasure is over? We urge you, dear readers, to do as we do--follow the affair closely, and with every hope that it will turn into this Season's most delicious scandal.
