Dutiful and loyal to her family, Rose has accepted her fate, but she soon begins to question her duty when Leopold Hunt, the handsome Marquess of Cavanaugh, comes to her rescue on a rainswept English country road…

Little does she know that the marquess is a secret royal with a distant hereditary claim to her father’s throne. He has been groomed to one day overthrow her father the king and rebuild his family’s dynasty. Soon, Rose and Leopold’s passions burn too hotly to be denied, and the secret lovers must choose between love or honor, duty or desire.
