Helen Nichols is trapped in a web of deceit. When the love of her life, Duke Trent "North" Kent arrives in her town after an accident and doesn't remember who he is, Helen desires to keep him in the dark. After all, he just might fall in love with her, if he isn't bound by his social standings as a duke.
North believes he is a Scottish pastor named Hamish Campbell, yet he can't help but feel something is wrong. He can't write a sermon. He certainly can't preach! He remembers aristocratic nuances better than how to outline his Sunday message. And, most vexing of all, why has he not pursued the lovely Helen before now?
Will North remember who he is? Can Helen give up the lie in order to find true love? Or must their affection be sacrificed for the sake of protocol?
