This is my first book by this author and I have to admit that I really enjoyed it. There was real chemistry between Michael and Margaret.

After a fire that consumes her husband and their livelihood, Margaret finds 3 books in the strongbox that holds the money from their business. She decides to try to sell one to one of the three men her husband had indicated would be interested in the books. While leaving the home of the buyer, she hears music and pauses in the darkened garden to listen for a few minutes. There, she meets an attractive man. When they are interrupted by one of Michael's acquaintances, Margaret slips out of the garden and back to the carriage.

Michael is so taken with her that he searches for her. Finally, his friend realizes that Michael is referring to the woman who was selling the book. Michael is going to parties to find a wealthy wife. Margaret will not suit because she is an impoverished commoner. Margaret also realizes that the interest that they have in each other can not lead to happiness. However, their interest in each other will not be tamped down by its impossibility.
