WAS SHE AN ARISTOCRAT – OR AN IMPOSTOR?
It took but a few words from the lips of a dying woman to change beautiful young Janine Oldfield's life utterly. The woman was her mother, who declared that Janine was more than the daughter of the most notorious actress in Regency London: she was also heiress to one of the greatest family names in England.
But when Janine came to the magnificent estate of Calworth to assume her place as granddaughter of proud and imperious Sir Adam Winterton, she discovered how perilous her exalted new position was . . . And as she fell in love against her will with handsome, scornful Richard Stuart, who accused her of being a pretender, she began to suspect that this man, who held her in such infuriatingly low esteem, might be actually, awfully, right.
