The Marquis had met his match!
It was obvious to everyone except Miss Jane Osbourne, who kept her feelings to herself while she tended to the wounded man. Max, Lord Massingham, was not only handsome and generous, she thought, but he would make an ideal husband for some lucky bride, perhaps her ward, the lovely Amanda. Max's hopes were not on Amanda, but on Jane herself. Yet before he could declare his love, he had to protect Jane and her ward from harm, as well as uncover an unknown assailant wanting to take his fortune and his life.
