"YOU HAVE BEEN CHEATED, MY DEAR FELICIA . . ."
These were the dying words of Felicia Brook's guardian. An overturned carriage had taken his life, and nearly cost Felicia hers. But she had been lifted from the wreckage by Henry, Lord Chessyre, one of the ton's most eligible bachelors . . .
Although the handsome lord looked at her outmoded dress with distaste, he did not miss her incandescent beauty. And when he discovered that Felicia had indeed been swindled out of a vast inheritance, he gallantly offered to investigate. Gratefully, Felicia accepted . . . and secretly lost her heart . . .
From London's elegant mansions to breathtaking Gothic Strawberry Hill, Felicia entered Chessyre's world of incomparable riches and gilded intrigues. But the gaiety and frivolity concealed a danger for the lady who fervently hoped that a chance encounter would be transformed into a lifetime of love . . .
