Bradford North, 25, is the second-eldest son of the Earl of Denham. A handsome young man, he is more than used to getting his own way with women. Somewhat of a charmer, he doesn’t expect to find a serious relationship and stick to it. That is, until he meets Mirabelle Steele. Beautiful and cultured, aloof and sophisticated, Mirabelle is almost thirty and not the sort of woman Bradford has ever seen before. Not only is she entirely different to him — mature, reserved and wise — she is also seemingly indifferent to him. Bradford tries his best to woo her and then, believing he has failed, gives up. Little does he know that the beautiful countess has a secret.
Mirabelle, widowed by the war, is facing difficulties of her own. And when Bradford finds himself in difficulty, they find themselves thrown together. Can they both overcome their considerable pride and open themselves to the frightening, fascinating, and full possibility of their love?
A tale of trust, truth, and the unbreakable power of love, set against the refined and ruthless backdrop of Regency London.
