Caroline takes advantage of a breach in social more, to trap a certain rake of a Duke into marriage. Lawrence’s wealth will save her family, and so she breaks off her affair with Joseph, the love of her life. She willingly enters into a marriage of convenience, wherein Lord Cambria is permitted to entertain his mistress, Sara, subject to strict discretion, which applies likewise to Caroline’s affairs of the heart.
After many months, Caroline encounters her Joseph while on an outing in London with her husband. She is surprised at Lawrence’s reaction when he comes upon the two together in a public area. It is at this point that the arrangements of the marriage come into question, and Caroline is forced to question the entire relationship.
Can the heart love another once it has been given to that special someone? The author vividly takes the reader on a journey, visiting the hearts and minds of those involved in a union meant only for two.
