She had dreamed of that magical experience called falling in love. And, dreaming, she had conjured up a dashing and handsome gentleman ... A far cry from Crazy Jack, a penniless and nameless vagrant, haunted by disgrace and the shadow of some terrible tragedy. Dreams are all that the graceful Jennifer Britewell has had of love and marriage since a childhood accident left her barren. Now, try as she might, the generous lady cannot bring herself to believe the gossip about "Crazy Jack." It would be beneath her to consider him anything but a servant. But when he allows her to see traces of his honesty, intelligence, and gallantry, all warnings of her possible disgrace fade into the mists of Cornwall. Starving, badly beaten, and destitute when he dragged himself to the village, Jonathan claims to remember little of his previous life. But as he and Jennifer begin to uncover the secrets of his past, they become embroiled in the dangerous dealings of the League of the Jewelled Men. Was Jonathan mixed up in their traitorous plot? Why is the lecherous Lord Hibbard Green interested in Jennifer and her father's estate? Patricia Veryan continues her marvelous Georgian series in a spellbinding new tale of conspiracy, adventure, and romance.
