Jason Caine had jilted Kristen in one simple, devastating telephone call. The pain was so incredible that she couldn't believe it; she had to go to him, to hear from his own lips that he no longer loved her. Jason did better than that - he introduced her to his wife. Kristen had to escape to Pennsylvania, where she had grown up and been happy. But even with the love of her Aunt Martha and the friendship of widower David Tremain to comfort her bruised heart, how could she possibly forget Jason? And how could she relax when the man they all called 'His Lordship' seemed to have taken control of the farm that was her refuge?
