One night, he saved her reputation.
Now, she is determined to save his life.
Tristan Turner, Viscount Elton, is haunted by a night he cannot remember.
After his parents’ untimely demise, he has done his utmost to live up to his family’s expectations. However, despite his best intentions, his reputation is far from respectable.
Weary of a life he cannot escape, Tristan wishes for nothing more but a wife who knows the best and the worst of him and loves him nonetheless. However, so far he hasn’t had any luck finding the woman of his dreams among the ladies of the ton.
Until the night of the Earl of Radcliff’s mask ball changes everything.
Elizabeth “Beth” Walker is faced with a terrible truth.
Upon her mother’s death, she learns that her life began far away from the simple, hard-working existence she’s always known. Determined to discover the truth of her mother’s past as well as her own, she finds a position in the household of the Earl of Radcliff only to discover that often people are not who they appear to be. Before long, Beth’s priorities shift as the future suddenly holds more sway over her than the past ever could and her heart leads her down a different path.
Will Beth uncover the reason for her mother’s silence? Will Tristan live long enough to find the woman of his dreams? In a world where a privileged upbringing is not always what it seems and simple joys can outweigh high social standing, two people must face their past and determine who they are on their own apart from the lies their parents forced on them.
