Alisa 's parents are gone and their English friends have graciously offered to take her in, in fulfillment of a promise made years ago. Their son, however, is less than thrilled at the idea of the young American orphan girl moving in and living off his family's money.
Bram, formally known as Lord Belden, makes his feelings known from the start, and Alisa vows to marry the first man who offers for her hand just to be out from under his constant scrutiny.
One night changes everything, though. Bram decides that discipline is in order for the errant young spitfire, and things go a little too far. He will do the right thing and make her his wife, much to the delight of his parents. But can Alisa ever be happy with the man who seems to distrust her so much? Or are his feelings for her softening more than he cares to admit?
