The Perfect Stranger . . . Beautiful Marianna Chapin knew next to nothing about the devastatingly handsome and charming "Mr. Henry Duke" who had bought the estate adjoining that of Marianna's stepmother.
She knew only that this seemingly perfect gentleman had much that he wanted no one to know. She knew only that both her stepsisters were setting their caps and snares for him. She knew only that a scandal from the past made it impossible to hope he might look on Marianna with love and not mere lust. And she knew only that she did not know how to stop wanting him to want her. Characters: Mr. Henry Duke and Miss Marianna Chapin
