Miss Kate Farleigh was virtually kidnapped by Lady Cahill, after refusing that lady's 'charity'. But she saw her purpose when included in a visit to Jack Carstairs, Lady Cahill's grandson. Wounded in the Peninsular War, he'd returned home to find his fiancee had ended their engagement. He'd retreated to his country estate, but Kate had no patience with Jack's forcefully uttered requests to be left alone! (From back cover, 1999)
