Bruised by a broken engagement, artist Kathryn Beaumont has retreated to her family's home in the country. The arrival of autocratic Gerard Fitzalan in the small community of Hollinswood, however, threatens to disrupt Kathryn's cozy, quiet world. Not only does he now own the land on which her family's business depends, but his intense interest in Kathryn presents her with an agonizing dilemma. Can Kathryn trust him? Is she merely a diversion before he returns to New York and a more glamorous love interest? Are his pledges of support to her family genuine or a cynical ploy designed to buy time? As evidence of Gerard's treachery mounts, Kathryn finds herself torn between loyalty to her family and desire for a man who has woven a spell around her heart.
