Selena is tough and independent, scraping just enough money to survive. When she falls for Leo Calvani she thinks he's a kindred spirit apparently he
lives a simple life in rural Italy and, like her, he's illegitimate.
But she arrives at his home only to discover it's the largest house in the district, that he owns two villages and his uncle is a count! This is not the
Leo she thought he was. But then a new discovery comes to light Leo is proved not to be illegitimate after all, which makes him the count's heir! It's
Selena's worst nightmare. There's no way she could ever be a countess.
