The Altar Stood Empty . . .
Miss Mathilda Heath took a stand for love when she abandoned Miles Stephens, Viscount Halifax, on the eve of their wedding. Perhaps if Miles had seemed at all smitten – if he'd given her a billetdoux or the speaking glance she coveted – she would not have fled to India with his far more affectionate friend!
Now, a decade later, Mathilda has returned to London as a widow with two young sons – and encountered the still-handsome man to whom she was once betrothed. There's something different about Miles, though – a warmer glance, a brighter smile . . . dare she say a bit of a romantic spark? For Miles and Mathilda, this just may be a second chance at love – or a devious scheme matching broken heart for broken heart!
