After the tragic death of his wife, Jasper, the 8th Duke of Bainbridge buried himself away in the dark cold walls of his home, Castle Blackwood. When he’s coaxed out of his self-imposed exile to attend the amusements of the Frost Fair, his life is irrevocably changed by his fateful meeting with Lady Katherine Adamson.

With her tight brown ringlets and silly white-ruffled gowns, Lady Katherine Adamson has found her dance card empty for two Seasons. After her father’s passing, Katherine learned the unreliability of men, and is determined to depend on no one, except herself. Until she meets Jasper…

In a desperate bid to avoid a match arranged by her family, Katherine makes the Duke of Bainbridge a shocking proposition—one that he accepts.

Only, as Katherine begins to love Jasper, she finds the arrangement agreed upon is not enough. And Jasper is left to decide if protecting his heart is more important than fighting for Katherine’s love


  • A wonderful read.

    By Random Gemini
    Not as historically accurate as some, but truly poignant story telling more than makes up for those missing details. Just a lovely book and well worth your time!

    I found this book to be quite intriguing in the time period in which it was written. The conflicts between Jasper and Katherine were so typical of that time period when women were just coming of age and learning to not cower but speak up for themselves. I would recommend it to one and all to read. LaMar

  • It was actually good.

    It was good. A defenite page turner.
  • Predictable

    By Tamtarr
    Very sappy, and easy to predict. Lots of misunderstandings, and hurt feelings. The story had potential, but the execution could have used more work.
