His hard-won peace is shattered by the mischievous creature with the wicked dimple and mysterious past.
Orphaned and cheated of her inheritance, Emily Claire Scarborough has sailed halfway around the world to find the man who promised her father he would take care of her, then abandoned her to an English boarding school.
