The only daughter of a European banking dynasty, Raphaella
had always been sheltered from the world. Married to a much
older American, she was kept in the privacy of great luxury,
tended to by servants, watched over by bodyguards.
She was the beautiful dark-eyed woman the young lawyer from
San Francisco, Alexander Hale, saw sitting alone one misty
evening. Before he could approach her, she rushed away into
the garden. She was the "perfect stranger" he couldn't
forget. When they met again their lives would change forever.
