Once again Ranney demonstrates her incredible ability to create a powerful story brimming with passion and flair. Her characters, intelligent with extreme
emotional depth, immediately grab the reader. This highly emotional story is one to be treasured and long remembered.

Lady Sarah enters her despised father's home in London to discover that he is ordering her marriage to Douglas Eston as a way to get financial backing for his invention. His agreement to not send her mother to Scotland is his leverage against Sarah.

Douglas, who grew up an orphan on the streets of Perth, is not titled, although his hard work and many inventions have made him extremely wealthy. He is immediately taken by Sarah's intelligence, selflessness and emotional strength. What Sarah views as a marriage of convenience gradually changes. Douglas' caring, protective nature rapidly changes her opinion him and their marriage. As her emotional feelings toward him increase dramatically, so does her love and their now passionate relationship. Nowhere is this more apparent than at the story's explosive climax.
