Theresa Jennings strayed from the path of propriety as a
younger woman, though now she'll do anything to secure her
child's eventual acceptance on the fringes of polite
society. Theresa will even make peace with the titled
brother who turned his back on her when she needed him most.
Matthew Belmont is a widower who's been lonely too long. He
sees Theresa as a woman paying far too high a price for
mistakes long past, and as a lady given too little credit
for turning her life around. Theresa is enthralled by
Matthew's combination of honorable intentions and honest
passion, but then trouble comes calling, and it's clear
somebody wants to ruin any chance Theresa and Matthew have
for a happily ever.
