Independent and strong-willed, Princess Leigh is devastated to learn her father, the King, is forcing her into marriage. To make matters worse, she is engaged to the arrogant Lord Angeles. In the hopes that finding a suitable replacement groom better suited to her will please her father and give Leigh her own 'happily ever after', she sets off to find her soul mate. Her plans are a great success when she meets the golden-haired and very handsome Lord John. But, when Leigh's adventures get her into grave danger, who will come to her rescue: the dark and brooding Angeles; or the caring and attentive John? Along the way, Leigh learns that things are not always what they seem when you have Deceptive Passions.
