It's another quiet day in the life of Lady Anne Peckworth. Cosseted daughter of a duke, considered fragile because of her limp, she is somewhat looking forward to her pending engagement. But when her sister reads a letter that announces that Anne's fiance has married another, she's not really surprised. After all, that's twice she has been jilted. There was no great love lost anyway. Just when she has resigned herself to spinsterhood, her brother shows up with a guest. Race DeVere has been sent by Anne's latest ex-fiance to make sure she'll be all right after she hears the news. When Anne's sister goes into labor that same night, Race and Anne spend a long evening together. Each is reluctantly fascinated by the other. Race determines to bring Anne out of her shell. Anne is determined that she must marry. Both are excruciatingly aware of the huge difference in social standing. Anne looks elsewhere, but no one comes close to Race.
