Diana Palmer delivers a tale of two unlikely lovers in turn-of-the-century Texas who are about to find love where they least expect it…
Count Eduardo Cortes is about to lose his fortune—and his beloved ranch. His money woes, and a tragic past, mean his family is pressuring him to marry for convenience instead of love. He gives in, until he encounters Bernadette Barron, wandering frightened and disheveled after a society ball…
Beneath the grime, it’s clear Bernadette is beautiful and rich. But will she bring Eduardo further heartbreak or has he finally found the one woman who can save his ranch and heal his heart? The Spanish count can provide Bernadette with the title she needs—but can he return her feelings?
Gazing into her husband’s penetrating eyes, Bernadette sees not only his calculating ways but also his quick arousal to passion. Will their growing desire be enough to overcome the mounting challenges they face…and to claim the love they both crave?
