As a young woman, Lady Charlotte Fortney learned what passion truly was from her handsome neighbor, Daniel Walsh. When they were discovered, her father sent the lowly doctor's son far away from their precious daughter. Years later, spinster Charlotte is content to watch others play the courtship game-until Daniel returns from India, rekindling a desire that time could never erase. But Daniel seems to have set his sights on another woman, the one match Charlotte would do anything to prevent. He may be willing to give her up-if Charlotte gives herself in exchange. . . . Book one of the Fortney Follies series.
