After being widowed by a steeplechase accident in Ireland,
Lady Kate Whelan abandons the turf. But once her mourning is
complete, her late husband's debts drive her to seek help in
Newmarket amidst the whirl of a race meet. There she
encounters antiquities expert Evan Rhys, her late husband's
roguish friend-whom she hasn't seen since the day of his
lordship's mysterious death.
Now that fate has reunited them, Evan seizes the chance to
win over the woman he's always loved. But once back within
the old stone walls of Whelan House, long-held secrets come
to light that shake up everything Kate thought she knew
about her marriage. Now she wonders who she can trust with
her heart-and Evan must decide between love and a truth that
will separate him from all his heart desires.
