Alice Lacey’s marriage to the Duke of Ferrant was the event of the season. No one realized Alice secretly love someone else – or that she confided her feelings to a clever talking mynah bird who announces these intimacies at the moment of the couple’s wedding.

The man Alice thought she loved isn’t what he seems; and the man she married, something far more than she hoped. Her last hope and redemption is convincing her husband that they are in love.
