Almost 20 years ago, actress Diane Runyard fell in love with nobleman Steven Cartwright, but their brief affair ended when Steven was forced to marry another woman. Over the years, Diane tried to forget about Steven, but after arriving at Lord Witherspoon's estate, memories of her former lover resurface once Diane discovers Steven's young son is one of the nobleman's guests. Not only is the younger Steven the spitting image of his father, but his hopeless crush on Diane further complicates matters. When rumors that his son has developed an unsuitable tendre for an older woman reach the widower Steven, he rushes to Lord Witherspoon's to wrest his son from the clutches of a scheming actress only to once again encounter the only woman he ever loved. In her latest elegantly written novel, Savery does an excellent job of unraveling the complicated romantic entanglements that link a colorful cast of characters.
