An extraordinarily beautiful woman finds out how it feels to completely lose her heart.
Lauren Hill is the widowed Countess of Bergen. Alex Christian is the Duke of Sutherland.
Lauren has just returned to her home - Rosewood, to resume care of her beloved orphaned charges. She chances upon an encounter with Mr. Christian, whom she mistakenly takes as a country gentleman. What follows is a very angsty romance indeed.
Lauren is eventually forced by her Uncle Ethan to go to London in order to find another suitable husband. There she again encounters Mr. Christian, whom she now learns is the Duke of Sutherland, and is engaged to be married to Lady Marlaine Reese.
