Dear Sir,

I feel I should inform you that your mother is very ill.

If you wish to see her before it is too late, you should come at once.


Mrs. Camilla Stuart

Pierce Waverly, the Earl of Devonmont, has led an unabashed rogue's life, letting no woman near his heart. Inexplicably abandoned as a child to be raised by distant relatives, Waverly never forgave his parents. Only when a letter arrives, is his resolve shaken, and he takes what may be his last chance to discover the truth...

Two surprises await him at Montcliff where he returns for Christmas. His mother is perfectly healthy and couldn't be further from her deathbed. The second is Camilla Stuart, her lady's maid, a lively vicar's widow, too bright and beautiful not to arouse the scoundrel in Pierce.

Though she alone gives him reason to prolong his stay, Waverly is soon faced with more secrets... Why he was abandoned as a child, and why Camilla is so eager to reunite mother and son.

Camilla herself is caught up in love's complications since the arrival of the irresistible earl. As his bold flirtation and suggestive whispers draw her dangerously close, can anything protect her vulnerable heart? If they are to share an honest love, then secrets must be spilled - even if the truth may ruin everything they have...
