Content with her life as a lady's maid, Isabel Knott learns the father she never knew has left her a fortune. The news comes with one restriction--she can never reveal his name. Isabel falls in love with Colby Tisbury, but with her nonexistent pedigree his father, Lord Tisbury, will never accept her as his daughter-in-law.
Colby Tisbury must marry, and soon. If he doesn't find a bride before the end of the Season, his father will supply one. Then Colby meets sassy Isabel Knott, and everything changes--but can he go against his father's wishes and marry a girl utterly lacking in family and connections? Isabel is forced to make an impossible choice - reveal her secret identity and bring shame to her true father or lose Colby forever.

The midwife wrapped the child in a clean blanket and handed the infant to her mother.
The young woman stared at the tiny face. She had a full head of dark hair and a good set of lungs that she didn’t mind using. “Hush now, little one. No need to fret,” she cooed as the child quieted.
Mary smiled at her friend. “You did it. I knew you could.”
“Oh, Mary, isn’t she the most beautiful child?”
Mary squeezed her hand. “Indeed she is.”
Tears welled in the young woman’s eyes and spilled down her cheeks. “Whatever am I going to do?”
Mary had no solution to her friend’s dilemma. “I don’t know.”
