HER MISSION WAS TO MA LOVE OR FOR DUTY
The pampered world of the six Beverley sisters came crashing down when their father gambled away the family's exquisite estate, Mannerling. Each sister secretly dreamed of marrying some new owner of their old home and getting it back. Three have wed, happily choosing love over Mannerling.
Like her sisters, Rachel, too, wishes to regain Mannerling. Now a new and most eligible bachelor has taken up residence: the handsome widower Charles Blackwood. But her plan almost comes to naught when she admonishes him for neglecting his two small children, whose antics successfully throw Charles and Rachel together -- along with an undeniable passion.... But does she love him for himself or for Mannerling?
Hero: Charles Blackwood
Heroine: Rachel Beverley
