Lovely Daisy Jenkins is suddenly elevated far above her station—and catches the eye of the handsome Duke of Oxenden. But the dashing Duke has mysterious motives—and Daisy is determined to marry for love.
Daisy Jenkins never expected to be anything more than a trespasser on the idyllic lawns of Marsden Castle. Then suddenly she was admitted into the seemingly magic circle of the Earl and Countess of Nottenstone, where she awaited the arrival of the notorious Lord Chatterton; her father - a stranger whose very name was foreign to her. She was suddenly Daisy Chatterton, surrounded by aristocratic sharks who seemed to both court as well as mock her. And why did the elegant Duke of Oxenden offer his protection to this newcomer who made him laugh at the very word "love’"? She was determined to show them all! She’d prove there was such a thing as true love, no matter how hard, or how far she had to search to find it!
