A man who never expected to inherit. A woman who never expected to wed. A choice that pits their honor against their hearts.
Scarred and lame after a riding accident, shy heiress Aurelia Newbold is resigned to her wallflower status—until a handsome, gallant stranger draws her into a secret waltz and awakens long-buried desires. A year later, a newly confident Aurelia returns to London, hoping to meet her mysterious partner again… only to find that he has since acquired a title, an estate, and a beautiful fiancee. And the lucky lady just happens to be Aurelia’s beloved twin sister.
A Note From the Publisher
This is a new edition of my debut novel, first published in 2012. Now with a bonus epilogue!
“Sherwood effortlessly evokes the world of Edith Wharton and Henry James, and her exquisite character development, memorable secondary characters, and impeccably researched historical setting infuse this elegantly written debut with a richness and depth worth savoring.”—Booklist, Starred Review
"Poignant, compelling, and thoroughly satisfying, this engaging historical puts a refreshing spin on the classic mismatched lovers plot and adds a dash of adventure. A delightful debut for the Southern California-based Sherwood."—Library Journal
“Sherwood debuts with a lovely story where threads of family and friendship play an important role . . . the evenly flowing plot and nicely written dialogue set the tone of the era and the characters’ motivation so well that readers will be enchanted.”—RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars
