Isabella is the daughter of a Spanish nobleman. She has spent the last eight years in a remote convent, but is still spirited and independent. Unusual for her time and class, she is very wealthy. She is also married to an absent British soldier.

Luke Ripton has changed a great deal during the war. He was a light hearted and handsome young man. He is still handsome, but haunted by what he has seen and done.

Eight years ago Luke saved a young girl from a horrible fate and married her to save her name. He left her with her aunt at a remote convent and went about his life. Now he is a baron and needs an heir and remembers he is conveniently married already. Isabella is no conventional or convenient miss, and Luke is about to find out just how inconvenient his marriage of convenience will be.

Ms. Gracie has taken the reader out of the drawing rooms and ballrooms of the Regency era and into the mountains of Spain. Isabella is a fiery and appealing heroine who is intelligent, unconventional, and capable, despite her years in the convent. She also has a generous spirit that Luke needs. He appears cold and aloof, but is really a tortured soul in need of redemption. The author has done a wonderful job of describing Spain and its society in the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars, and has created wonderful characters that the reader will remember long after the story is finished.
