Award-winning author Sara Portman captures the thrill of a booming British port city, where fortunes await merchant princes who dare to rewrite the rules of wealth, destiny, and passion. . .

Lancashire, 1820s: Lydia Thatcher is content to live away from the gritty bustle of Liverpool—and out of reach of the new elite class presiding there. The shipping merchant’s daughter has rejected aristocracy and all its trappings ever since high society rejected her. But her quiet country life turns intriguing when a stranger appears, claiming to be the resident lord of Daulton Grove—a vast estate Lydia has apparently inherited from a grandfather she’s never met.

With one signature, Lydia could sell the property to this eager, titled buyer. Instead, she steps into the role of a noble lady and arrives at Daulton Grove determined to understand her mysterious windfall. To her surprise, her assumptions about Henry, Lord Harridon are quickly proved wrong: tending cows and home repair fill his days, not foxhunting and formal dinners. Ignoring their blossoming attraction is proving impossible. But just as revelations about Lydia’s heritage surface, so do secret motives of Lord Harridon, who may not be immune to high-stakes dealings and fortune grabbing. If Lydia can’t trust him, can she trust her own heart?. . .
