Red-haired Leah Brant ignores warnings that she will make a fool of herself by trying to enter London society, but after a life as a virtual prisoner, she insists on starting out on just such a journey. A suspicious carriage accident brings Neil Drummond to her rescue. Leah's money would save Neil's ancestral estate as well he knows, and he resists wooing her for just that reason. Nonetheless, he falls in love with her, even as Leah is proclaiming of her intention to never marry again. A marriage would reveal to her new husband the painful secret she guards so carefully. But can she keep her secret from one who wants to harm her? Can she keep it from Neil? And what if he already knows what it is?
