Chambermaid? Juliana was in disbelief of Lady Catherine's demand. To be reduced to serve Richard in such a fashion was a humiliation she did not know she could endure, but what choice did she have?
Lord Richard Bentley was returning home from the war a hero, his one thought was Juliana Wadsworth. For years, he wondered about his childhood friend. Only to return home and discover her family's estate in ruin. Dead. Burned to death in a fire, was what his step-mother had told him. It was a cruel blow indeed, for he always believed they were meant to be.
The coffers were bare. Lady Catherine knew she must make Richard marry to fill them again. Her conniving knows no bounds. However, not even she could predict how the events she set into motion would change all their lives forever.
