The heir presumptive to the Viscount Rathmoor, Dominick
Manton once had his heartâ€™s desire within reachâ€”a bright
future as a barrister and engagement to Jane Vernon, a
wealthy baronâ€™s daughter. Then a shattering betrayal by
vindictive brother George snatched away Domâ€™s inheritance
and his hopes of offering Jane a secure future.
Brokenhearted, and attempting to end their engagement
without destroying Janeâ€™s reputation, Dom staged a
of his own to convince her that heâ€™s not the husband-to-be
that she thought.
