There was just one more year to wait before Rome Barclay would be officially a widower and free to remarry. Though his wife Suzanne had drowned six years before, her body had never been recovered. His secretary, Paulette, was waiting out the time with eagerness. But then so was lovely Fiona, his little girl's governess.
