Beverly himself had died; the eldest daughter, Isabella--having failed in her bid to reclaim their home--was blissfully wed. The mantle of savior then fell to the next eldest daughter, Jessica. How fortunate that the new owner of Mannerling had a marriageable son.

As scandal and intrigue swirl around her, Jessica must discover where the heart finds true happiness. . . .
