From the moment Douglas rescues little Rose from a teetering oak branch, the child is besotted. Her mother inevitably follows, though not without a fight. Their paths are thrown together as Guinevere advises him on an estate he’s contemplating purchasing. Her unconventional knowledge was gained when providing for her child, without the aid of the child’s disappointing father. Douglas is irresistibly drawn to the prickly woman, and knows how to make her feel safe. They enjoy delicious secret times together, but she refuses to marry, without giving a reason. When the child’s father and his grasping titled father learn about the child, will Rose be lost? What secret keeps Gwen from loving fully? Skilfully drawn challenges and clever resolution.
