Love’s Magic . . .
While at school, Cordelia Barrington befriended a young Gypsy named Maria. Now, years later, Maria has died in childbirth, and Delia has devoted herself to the baby, vowing to keep him safe at all costs until she can get him to his remaining family.
From the moment he reads Delia’s letter about the boy, Major Mitchell Holcomb is convinced she’s a charlatan out to bilk his family with a false heir. And he knows he’s just the man to make her rue the day she devised such a scheme. But strong-willed as he is, Holcomb is no match for Cordelia Barrington and her beguiling, bewitching, and bewildering charms.
