With a sister like she has, keeping her suitor a secret is a must.
Have a season. Meet some handsome gentlemen. Be courted by at least one, fall in love, and live happily ever after. That’s all Grace Love wants. However, when a lady has a sister like Grace does, getting what she wants is going to take a bit of subterfuge.
When a pretty stranger shares a secret smile with Walter Blakesley in the park, his curiosity is aroused. Then, when the same lady refuses his offer to dance but not because she does not want to dance with him, his interest in her intensifies, leaving him unable to reject her proposal to meet in secret.
What Walter finds when he finally meets Grace is an intriguing and lively young woman who possesses a tender heart and a determined, yet gentle, spirit. She is exactly what he has been looking for, and he would gladly shout his admiration of her to the world.
However, Grace is unwilling to allow him to proclaim his attachment, for she has lost more than one gentleman to her sister already, and losing Walter would be the greatest devastation imaginable. Unfortunately, no matter what steps Grace has taken to protect herself from such a tragedy, they may not be enough, and a love forged in secret may only ever be a bittersweet memory of what could have been.
