Většina debutantek sní o tom, že si najde manžela. Lady Pandora Ravenelová má jiné plány. Ctižádostivá mladá kráska by mnohem raději zůstala doma a věnovala se podnikání se svou novou deskovou hrou, než aby se zúčastnila londýnské společenské sezóny. Jenže jednou v noci na plese společenské smetánky padne do pasti skandálu s hříšně hezkým cizincem.
Poté, co se léta s lehkostí vyhýbal nástrahám manželství, se Gabriel, lord St. Vincent, konečně nechal nachytat – mladou rebelkou, která se k němu ani za mák nehodí. Po pravdě řečeno, nechce s ním nic mít. Jenže pro Gabriela je temperamentní Pandora naprosto neodolatelná. Udělá všechno, co je v jeho silách, aby ji získal, i když se z jejich manželství z rozumu vyklube smlouva s ďáblem.
Poté, co podlehne Gabrielovu obratnému a smyslnému přesvědčování, Pandora slíbí, že se stane jeho nevěstou. Zanedlouho však zjistí, že její podnikání ji shodou náhod zapletlo do nebezpečného spiknutí – a jen manžel ji může uchovat v bezpečí. Zatímco ji Gabriel ochraňuje před neznámými protivníky, zjišťují, že smlouva s ďáblem se může vlastně ukázat jako dar z nebes…
