From the back of the book--
Haunted by memories fo her fiance, who was killed in the war, Leonora resists the attentions of two of the most eligible suitors in Yorkshire. The willful beauty simply was not interested in men or marriage. At least until she met the mysterious young man hired to be her private groom.
Tony Bingle had a scar on his face and a chip on his shoulder. He was surly and insolent, and probably quite dangerous. But each time she saw him, her feelings inexplicably deepened. Forbidden feelings that her impeccable breeding-and his low station in life-demanded she ignore.
