Lovely young Sharah Howard had to decide who was the real Nicholas Stanhope? Was he this dazziling handsome heir to a glittering title who won her heart with his wonderful kindness and wonder filled kisses?

Was he a cold and calculating cad who seized on her father's folly to take possession of her familys estate? And above all, did she dare find out the truth about this man she could not help but love?
