If her unconventional behavior earns the mockery of handsome rakes like Captain Christopher Phelan, so be it. She’d rather stay true to herself, even if it means never finding love.

After a particularly devastating battle, he writes a letter to Prudence, unaware that the spoiled beauty has decided she doesn’t want to wait for him. Since Prudence won’t reply to the world-weary soldier, Beatrix offers to write a letter for her—and she signs it as Pru. A lively, witty correspondence begins, and gradually turns into something deeper as they share the secrets of their hearts. To Beatrix’s despair, she’s fallen for a man who thinks she’s someone else, and she’ll never be able to reveal her deception. Christopher, now a decorated hero, comes back to claim the woman he loves. Soon, however, he realizes Prudence is very different from her letters . . . and he’s bewildered by his inexplicable attraction to the eccentric Beatrix Hathaway . . .
