LOVE'S SECOND SEASON . . .
Four years ago, one waltz with a handsome costumed "pirate" told Holly she'd met the love of her life. One kiss, and she promised to meet him the next afternoon for a romantic tet-a-tet . . . But never did she see his face, for the bounder failed to keep their rendezvous! Now widowed after a marriage of convenience and wary of love, Lady Holly Bentworth is chaperoning her two step- daughters through the marriage mart - with a sharp eye out, this time, for fickle strangers . . .
Though his dreams are still haunted by the exquisite "angel" who broke their tryst after a long- ago masquerade, the Earl of Glenhaven is beyond smitten with the pretty widow Bentworth, not realizing they are one in the same.
And Holly, though wary, seems to have eyes for the earl, unaware that he was the masked pirate who had once stolen her heart. Can this tragedy of errors ever be put to rights? It will if her scheming debutante charges have their way. For they cannot be satisfied until Holly is happily reunited with the true love of her life.
