Welsh ministers daughter Catrin Jones is the talk of Britain. Many women served as nurses in the Crimean War, skirting the edge of propriety to tend lonely soldiers wounds, but only Catrin survived a shipwreck on her return voyage. Suddenly, like a circus curiosity, everyone wants a glimpse of the scandalous Miss Jones.
Scarred, opinionated, and adjusting to a rush of fame so very different from far-away battlefields, shes not the sort of woman Scottish robber baron William Christie aspires to marry. Following a decade of brilliant business maneuvers, William is on the verge of securing a key railroad contract.
But his aristocratic wifes death during childbirth meant the loss of considerable influence. Few in Society have forgiven his up-from-the-gutters youth. With respectability, wealth, and his two-year-old son finally his to claim, William must decide whether an extraordinary nurse is worth embracing just a little more scandal.
