He had 4 daughters already and was told that the baby she carried would be a boy but in the time of delivery, the husband had to make a choice and so he chose the baby since it was to be a boy and the doctor said it would be more apt to make it before his wife and then it turns out it is a girl and the father turns away from her and goes to London to stay with the other girls and leaves her in the country with a cousin. so she does not know what loves is because no one has shown her any. it is very good book.

Born of tragedy and nurtured by scandal, Maresa Fairweather was a fifth daughter, all but abandoned by her widower father. Wild and headstrong, she was fortunate to have Percy Bronwell to keep her from harm's way. Now the childhood friends have grown up, but realizing his love for Maresa is unrequited, Percy enlists in the Royal Navy.
Always attracted to the wrong man, Maresa continues her flirtatious ways until increasing gossip dictates a change of scene. She travels to Italy but old habits are hard to break and, desperate to end another engagement, she pleads for Percy's help. He saves her the only way he can-by offering a marriage of convenience.
After only one night together, Percy returns to his naval command...and Maresa becomes the woman she was destined to be. Learning that Percy's life is in danger at the hands of the French, she risks her own life to save him--and to give him something he has always given her: unwavering love. But is it too late?
