Anastasia Quintin has resigned herself to live in quiet seclusion as companion to Miss Isabel Albryght, but one lost wager by her headstrong bookworm of a mistress soon requires Anastasia's return to the society from which she hides. Her first event in eight years is to be a house party in honor of the recently entitled Earl of Huntingdon, hosted by his haughty grandmother.
Dante, Earl of Huntingdon, is furious. His meddling grandmother, determined to find him a wife before the week is done, has thrown a party in his name. But his heart is not available. Since the death of his beloved Anna, he has shunned marriage, believing no other woman could replace her. However, his anger is quickly quenched when he waltzes with a fascinating young woman at the masked ball, but no sooner does the dance end than she rushes away, leaving only her mask behind her.
Anastasia, having been persuaded by Isabel to impersonate her at the ball, is in shock. She has just danced with Dante St. Clair, the very man who long ago stole her heart and thereafter dashed all her hopes and dreams.
Can one night, one waltz rekindle what was once thought lost forever?
