Romance Historical | Novella / Short Story
The beautiful Miss Amelia Snow is not accustomed to being
snubbed by the gentlemen of the ton. But when her mother
dies unexpectedly, forcing Amelia to take employment as
companion to a wealthy cit's daughter, she quickly learns to
play down her looks or risk losing her position. When her
employers, the Smithsons, decide to throw a country house
party, she is determined to fade into the background. But
how can she when the Smithson's guest of honor is Lord
Quentin Fortescue, the childhood friend who stole her heart?
Younger son, Lord Quentin Fortescue, is far more interested
in his host's cotton mills in the north than he is in
courting the man's dim–witted daughter. But it's the
girl's companion who makes him look twice. Years ago, Miss
Amelia Snowe rejected his proposal without a backward
glance. Quentin has molded himself into just the sort of man
she'd have wanted back then, but is Amelia still the smug
beauty who broke his heart? And can either of them risk
their newfound positions to indulge the fiery attraction
that burns between them?
