The death of her husband freed Serena Riverton from life as an abused sex-object. Now, her brother plans to sell her to another vile man.
This time, Serena flees, but finds herself stranded and near penniless. When a passing gentleman offers help, Serena accepts, and develops a new plan: become a rich man’s mistress so she can leave at any time.
Believing herself barren, Serena initiates a passionate encounter with her rescuer. However, Francis, Lord Middlethorpe is already committed to a sweet-natured lady. He finds Serena refuge with an elderly relative, and must return to his life. Then Serena discovers she’s pregnant.
They have no choice but to marry, but assailed by Serena’s scheming brothers, Francis’s appalled relatives and Serena’s painful past, is there any hope for the loving future they both seek?
