Clarinda hasn’t seen her late husband’s identical twin since she slapped him for his insolence all those years ago. The horrible things he accused her of still ring in her ears. But she’ll just have to learn to put all that behind her now. Because while the child she’s carrying might be the next earl, it’s Daniel Fitzwilliam—the man she secretly loved before she married his brother—who will assume the duties of the earldom until the heir is of age.
Daniel has loved Clarinda since her come-out. Circumstances—and an untimely case of mistaken identity—cost him his chance with her once, but he’s not about to let that happen again without a fight. When she’s out of mourning, he fully intends to properly court her...if she’ll have him, that is.
Soon, Daniel and Clarinda find themselves dealing with the arrival of the dowager countess, the appearance of the late earl’s disgruntled ghost, and the rather fishy circumstances surrounding his death. Can they overcome everything that stands between them and find their way back to each other? Or will their second chance at love end as badly as their first?
