Can a beautiful spinster trust love again?
Especially with the rogue who broke her heart the first time?
Olivia Kingsley didn’t expect to be swept off her feet and receive a marriage proposal two weeks into her first Season. However, one delicious dance with Allen Wimpleton, heir to a viscountcy, and her future is sealed. Or so she thinks until her eccentric father suddenly announces he’s moving the family to the Caribbean for a year.
Knowing her father will likely refuse his offer for Olivia’s hand, Allen begs her to elope. Having recently lost her mother, and worried her father is ailing too—which he insists remain a secret—she refuses. Distraught at her leaving, and unaware of her father’s ill-health, Allen doubts her love for him and foolishly demands she choose—him or her father.
Heartbroken at Allen's callousness, but thankful he’s revealed his true nature before they married, Olivia turns her back on their love. The year becomes three, enough time for her broken heart to heal, and after her father dies, Olivia returns to England. Coming face to face with Allen at a ball, she realizes she never purged him from her heart. But can they overcome their pasts and old wounds to find love again? Or has Allen found another?
