Lady Isabelle Axbridge is a young widow who has decided never to marry again. She was forced into a loveless marriage by her father and had to give up her true love, Lord Fenmore. Isabelle and her mother are visiting her Cousin George as members of a large house party. One of the guests is Marcus Bateman, a rugged, handsome man who is a friend of the host. Isabelle and Marcus are compelled to work together ” below the stairs” when a member of the staff falls ill. Isabelle finds the situation almost impossible when she finds out the Lord Fenmore is arriving with his fiancé. A satisfying story that is a good addition to the Historical Romance genre.
