Interwoven within the two girls lives is a cast of characters as varied as the New England seasons. Excitement mounts for the entire town when a new minister joins the close-knit community, while intrigue is piqued when a mysterious, colorful woman appears, carrying untold secrets from the past. With autumn comes the abundance of the apple harvest, while winters burden bears heavy on many. Will Abbys and Daisys faith be strengthened, or will it simply crumble amidst the challenges? Will they finally be able to declare with certainty that they have delighted in the Lord and obtained their hearts desires?
Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure.
No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches.
If he wins…she is his, for one wild night.
But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.
