When Lady Margaret unexpectedly inherits her great-aunt's vast estates and servants, this gives her direct power over Mayfield's land steward, Mr. Colin Caswell, the very man who broke her heart years earlier.
Margaret knows it would solve both their problems if she could find a way to hate him, but how can she? not when she vividly remembers the sensation of his lips pressed against hers. Of course, with that memory also comes the recollection of the heart-wrenching pain she suffered at Colin's rebuff of her hasty proposal of marriage. She understands why the stubborn man refused to let her lower herself to his social level, but he'd been wrong. While he thought she would be demeaning herself if she joined her life to his, how could loving him be anything but the best thing that could possibly happen to her?
Will Colin ever admit they belong together, or will he break Margaret's heart a second time?
