A lady who is as bold as she is beautiful
Runaway attraction…tender affection
And a mystery that could tear them apart
Michael Reed, Viscount Balsam, inherited little but his ancient home in Cornwall when his father passed away a year earlier. He partners with his good friend to train and race horses, intent on remaking his fortune.
Lady Elizabeth, Betsy, Bridgewater is tempted to accept an older gentleman’s proposal, if only to curb what her mother calls her wild streak. When Michael and Betsy meet at the Derby, sparks fly. When they reconnect at Bridgewater Park weeks later, they can’t ignore their attraction or their affection. Despite Betsy’s imminent betrothal and Michael’s troubling finances, neither can imagine life without the other.
Once back at Michael’s Cornwall estate, Betsy begins to look into his family mystery. He doesn’t want her interference, or for her to learn of the unsettling childhood memories that haunt him.
Can Michael accept Betsy’s help to learn the truth?
Or will his reluctance cause an estrangement that can never be mended?
