A Country Girl – and an Earl . . . With a clutch of lively half brothers and sisters to raise and too few servants, Hester Godric's life was one of simple country domesticity. Then David Fairfax arrived on her doorstep. The victim of a frightful coaching accident, he was young, handsome, and, though he chose to keep it a secret, the Earl of Alton. All too conscious of his charm, Hester dressed his wounds - and strove to conceal his very disturbing effect on her heart.
But fate would soon unmask her blue-blooded deceiver - and thrust Hester into the whirl of the London season. For the Earl had a growing tendre for the spirited but untitled Hester that posed a most perplexing question: could such an unsuitable match survive the ruthless quizzing of the treacherous ton?
