At 17, Isabella Barstowe, (not Arabella as Amazon have claimed), is trying to flee from men who have kidnapped her. It is all part of a plot made to look as if she was going to run off with another man. When things look their bleakest, Captain Rose, a pirate captain, manages to assist her. Little does she know that he is actually Captain Rose's half brother, Thorn, the Duke of Ithorne, who sometimes plays the pirate to escape his dull, duke life. Bella is grateful, but doesn't tell him much about herself or circumstances. She returns home, much to the disgust of her family, who believe her ruined, and are angry at her refusal at a match proposed by her father.

Four years later, Bella is told that she can leave her past behind due to an inheritance. She disguises herself and gives herself another name, Bellona Flint, and becomes acquainted with Lady Fowler and her friends. They run a newspaper press, often printing articles that cause tension, but they have strong beliefs and have no qualms about publishing them. She doesn't get along with them all, but has sympathy for some women in particular.

In the meantime, Thorn has had the young woman he saved in his mind. Bella only recalls him when she learns the truth about her kidnapping, so seeks out Captain Rose for assistance. This time it is the real Captain Rose and he doesn't know who she is. Nevertheless, he plays the role and informs Thorn, who agrees to meet her. Bella falls for 'Captain Rose,' as does he fall for her, but he doesn't believe she would be a suitable duchess, so he carries on with his role, and helps her out.

I was very disappointed with this book. While its was entertaining, I found Bella's reason for not accepting the duke a bit silly. I think the story dragged a bit too much.
