“I can help you become desirable in the eyes of men..”
Emily has had absolutely no success in finding a suitor. With all the pressure from her stepmother, she must make a match soon, or risk remaining a spinster forever. So, she does the unthinkable: ask her brother’s best friend, a known rake, to teach her how to make men desire her.
The infidelities of his father have made Daniel lose all faith in love and marriage. He has sworn to himself that when the time comes, his marriage will be one of convenience only. But all the wisdom he has acquired in his years as a rake can finally be used for good when a shy wallflower asks him for lessons in flirtation to secure a good match.
As Emily and Daniel’s lessons take place, though, he realizes he forgot to teach her the most important one: “never fall in love with a rake, especially if he falls for you too..”.
