About the Book

How could you, Mama? Papa has not even been dead a year!' When the beautiful Lucia Mountford's mother remarries less than a year after her father's death on the Titanic, she is shocked when the family's fortunes suddenly go into rapid decline and her mother becomes ill. Deeply in debt her stepfather borrows a considerable sum of money from the handsome but roguish Lord Winterton. Horrified, Lucia discovers that not only has she been pressed into working for him as his secretary to repay the debt, but that she has been promised to Lord Winterton in marriage. To add further misery to her burden, her mother's condition worsens and her life hangs in the balance. In the meantime, Lucia is being secretly wooed by the staid but goodlooking Edward de Redcliffe who is intent on making her his own.
