For the first time in her life, Lea Asher was alone. They were gone: first, her father, and now, Sir Harry, her devoted husband. At the funeral, Lea did not regret her marriage to the aging Sir Harry, even though it had dashed her dreams of romance forever.

But as the carriage made its way back to Gravetide Manor, and as she brooded on the secret deathbed promise, Lea couldn't know that her inheritance was nowhere to be found ... that someone--whether it was the strange Lord Durston, the carping Winifred, or the spineless Nigel--was determined to take everything from her... that she would have to fight not only for her home and her fortune, but for her very life!

Hero: Collin Mannings St. John, Sixth Earl of Dursten
Heroine: Lea Ellington Asher
