Life could be worse
But Cressida wasn't really sure how. Things had been bad ever since obligations had forced her to stay at home with her demanding stepmother. She'd even sprained her ankle while trying to help a mistreated dog, which left her stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Then she was rescued by Aldrik van der Linus. The handsome doctor took an interest in her affairs and everything began to improve... until she realized that although she loved Aldrik, he only saw her as a patient, not as a woman.
