As the most dazzling debutante of 1811, beautiful and reckless Miss Olivia Templestowe scandalised society when she eloped with notorious rake, Lucien, Lord Farquhar.

Five years later, she's paid the highest price for her impetuosity.

Lucien is dead, branding his wife a whore and unfit mother, and willing the care of their child to a relative.

Now Olivia is about to orchestrate a grand charade to reclaim everything she has lost.

AFTER YEARS ABROAD, fighting for king and country, Max Atherton has returned to the estate he's inherited and to take responsibility for his cousin's child.

When he discovers a young woman, unconscious, on his land, he's fired up with new purpose as love blossoms when he nurses her back to health.

But Olivia possesses a secret far darker than simply her identity.

A secret that threatens the future of the honourable man who has fulfilled her heart's desire.

As Olivia struggles to choose between Max's future, and safeguarding her son's, Max must discover the key to the puzzle that will free them all – before tragedy strikes!

A passionate love story with an intriguing mystery at its core.
