Patricia Simpson will delight historical fiction fans with this tale of intrigue and passion!
Sophie Vernet’s first trip to London is a disaster. She is accused of killing a man. Her mistress, who is slated to marry an English earl, dies in a fire. And a London constable aims to see her hang. Sophie must hide until the authorities stop looking for her. What better place to conceal herself than in the identity of her dead mistress?
For twenty long years, Ian Ramsay has done nothing but work toward a single goal: to get back Highclyffe, his family's estate in Scotland. Nothing will stand in his way. Not the wastrel Earl of Blethin who now owns Highclyffe or the cruel heiress he is about to marry. When Ramsay discovers the heiress is actually a penniless imposter, he knows his long-held goal is finally within reach. All he has to do now is make sure Sophie marries his mortal enemy.
But as snow falls upon London that winter of 1765, Ramsay's life takes a turn he could never have foreseen. He falls in love—with the one woman who could spoil everything.
