Wealthy, handsome, and devastatingly charming, the expatriate Hathaway Wycoff could easily win most women’s affections. But the lovely Lucy Stone isn’t most women. Though the self-respecting beauty is drawn to him, she refuses to give in to passion. Once before Lucy had followed her heart - a journey that took her to America and left her there a penniless young widow and mother.
A rich relative unexpectedly offers Lucy and her son passage back to England, answering her longtime prayer. She doesn’t want to leave Wycoff, but given his shadowy past and scandalous reputation, it seems the right choice. Wycoff promises he will change to win her, but Lucy cannot allow herself to believe him. When a devious plot threatens all Lucy holds dear, she must turn to the man she’s vowed not to trust. Neither knows what final destination fate has in store - but they are willing to risk everything to find out.
