A Scandalous Predicament . . .
With her renowned father ill, Miss Sarah Sterling traveled to Donmore Hall by herself to clean and restore the priceless paintings left to the new heir, Matthew Donaldson. It was simply scandalous for a young lady to be unchaperoned and employed; far worse Matthew Donaldson was no gentleman. A rough-and-tumble past had left him too unrefined for the narrow-minded ton.
Yet as Sarah set out to prove her expertise at art, she would find herself taken by Matthew's decidedly uncommon charm. Alas, his uncommon wealth would soon attract several uninvited highborn guests, including one prospective bride, Sarah felt strangely forlorn -- and suspicious. Could it be the Donmore paintings were suddenly disappearing? Amid intrigue and a growing tender for Matthew, Sarah was swept toward a dangerous liaison only a lady in love would risk!
