At twenty-five, Charlotte Rippon lived a life of utmost propriety while yearning for adventure outside the confining boundaries of her English village. Yet even she had no idea what Fate had in store for her when she rescued a badly-wounded man from the wayside and took him home to Rippon Manor.

A prince fighting to save his people, he demanded her passion, but Charlotte wanted so much more: she wanted his love!
