This is a ridiculously sweet story. Damien Hunt and Victoria Kendal are the children of family members who co-own a textile mill. Victoria is being raised by her old fashioned grandfather, who doesnt think that women have any place in business. Damien is a decade older than Victoria, but is desperately attracted to her. She falls for him and agrees to marry him. When she informs her grandfather he cant help but gloat that his plan to have her and Damien wed so that he can manage the mill has come to fruition. Hurt and outraged that Damien only wanted her for the business, Victoria flees to London where she becomes a model. Now her grandfather is dead, Victoria is back at the mill, and her grandfathers will says she must marry Damien in order to inherit her half of the company. Victoria is angry, Damien is determined to marry her, and despite further misunderstandings and more running away the end works out beautifully.
Damien had caught up with her. He was as hard and arrogant as ever and just as devastating. 'I intend to marry you, ' he said. 'but you'll never get under my skin again. I won't make that mistake twice. ' He had haunted Victoria's dreams since she was little more than a child. He had walked like a god through her world. But Victoria had spent the last six years trying to put the past behind her. She knew that Damien wasn't interested in her as much as in her inheritance--and she was determined not to succumb to him.
