Nicholas, the Marques of Cheriton and older brother of Susan and James, is in love with Louisa but fears he will never have her since Rebecca has entered the picture.
Lady Susan Haythe and Lord James Haythe are twins and good friends of Louisa.
Louisa joins her friends in London for a Season and to celebrate her coming out ball. The three friends are ecstatic to be with one another again, yet Louisa ponders on Nicholas, whom she feels is a lost love. Dowager Lady Cheriton eyes Louisa with deep scrutiny and does not wish any scandals while Rebecca does not approve of the dowagers interference. Louisa has behaved well with her chaperone always in her sight. At the ball, Louisa is happy and tells Susan they should share in the glow because another chance like this will never arrive for them. After she sees Nicholas they both begin to question the feelings they had in the past, and Nicholas knows for certainty that Louisa is the woman he truly loves. Now it is left to the both of them to overlook what others might say and seize the moment before it is too late for a second chance.

It flows smoothly and details the language and scenery quite vividly down to the lovely costumes of the era and the furnishings. Lesley Anne McLeod paints an enchanting portrait into the lives of well developed characters searching for something that will bring happiness in this charming tale that comes alive through the pages.
