A scandal destroyed her life…

A scandal destroyed Sophie Callaway’s reputation, but it couldn’t crush her spirit. After being exiled from proper Society and condemned by her own parents, she made a new life for herself caring for her people, dodging foppish fortune hunters, and struggling to manage Glennwick Castle and a vast estate. The last thing she needs is another scandal that threatens everything she’s built.

Another scandal might save it…

Henry Hartwell, Viscount Tilney, is scandal personified. Ever since running off a decade ago, he’s intrigued Society and enraged his father with his exploits abroad. His adventures and title earned him the reputation as England's most elusive bachelor, and Henry has every intention to remain elusive rather than being trapped in domestic life. When Henry’s adventures are unexpectedly waylaid, he finds himself fascinated by Sophie, who mistakes him for a fortune hunter and tries to send him on his way. The eccentricities and mysteries of Sophie and Glennwick Castle ensnare Henry, and, for once, England's most elusive bachelor is tempted to stay.

As Sophie and Henry are drawn together, the scandals of Sophie’s past are reawakened, and this time more than her reputation is threatened. Some people will go to great lengths to gain Sophie's inheritance, and it will require both an heiress and a hellion to save Glennwick Castle from falling into the wrong hands.
