It seemed that only yesterday Fenella Standish had been the happiest of young ladies, blessed by beauty and favored by fortune. She was the toast of the ton, and engaged to be wed to the man she adored — handsome, well-born Robert Thorne.

And Fenella, who had refused to let him marry her out of pity, had to find a way to hide the feeling she still had for him in a game of pride versus passion in which love held a most surprising winning card.
