In a Few Short Years the Little Backstairs Maid Had Become a Mother, a Widow, and an Heiress to a Staggering Fortune . . .
With her bright, sherry-brown eyes and her dazzling smile, little Jane Coombes was irresistible to men. This was her downfall. It caused her to lose her position as a maid in the prestigious household of the Montmorencys. It thrust her alone into the cold, cruel world.
But fortune gazed kindly on Jane. She was taken into the household of a gracious and forgiving woman whose son fell in love with Jane. She married him. A few years later both son and mother died, and Jane was left not only with a fortune, but a title as well, Lady Payton. Now these become the weapons which little Jane Coombes will use to avenge herself on a world that had tried to destroy her.
Characters: Sebastian, Lord Payton (1st hero), Lord Jasper Montmorency (2nd hero) and Jane Coombs
