"A vow to never fall in love is put to the test when an elusive lady captivates a gentleman's heart."

Harry Morant has no time for lengthy wooing and no
intentions of marrying a highbrow aristocratic lady. He
wants a nice, middle-class, suitable bride with morals and
respectability. He's asked his loving aunt to help him with
Nell Freymore, Lady Helen, has had a lifetime of evasions,
lies and secrets. It's time for her to take charge of her
life, search for the baby daughter who was stolen from her
in the night and find a safe place to raise her.
Harry and Nell meet by accident and their worlds change
forever. No woman has ever created such fire in Harry, and
in such a short time. He cannot get her out of his mind.
Suddenly there's no "suitable bride" for him. There's only
Nell. He doesn't know how it's happened, or why; he only
knows it is so. She's independent and strong, but so very
vulnerable and needs someone to care for her.
Nell is swept off her feet by Harry but is not capable of
making any decisions with her life until she finds her
daughter. This is all that keeps her going. The whole of
her life she's met only talkers; liars; dreamers; takers.
Harry is not much of a talker; he is a doer and he promises
to find her daughter. No one has ever really needed Harry;
not until Nell. He cannot fail her in this quest.
