Secrets and a second chance…
Lord Gabriel Stanford is certain that the infant left on his friend’s doorstep is his daughter and that Moira Brennan must be her mother. Though the Irish heiress spurned his previous marriage proposal, he is willing to swallow his pride and ask her again for the sake of their child. When Gabriel confronts her, Moira indignantly denies his scandalous accusation, insisting she is not Sarah’s mother nor would she ever abandon a child. The very intensity of Moira’s denial raises Gabriel’s suspicion. Invited to her father’s country house, he seizes the opportunity to discover what she is trying to hide.
Moira resents Lord Gabriel’s sudden intrusion into her life. The last man she would consider marrying is the charming nobleman who stole her heart only to break it. She is determined to wed a man who does not provoke the dangerously passionate feelings Gabriel once stirred in her. But as they spend time together and confront their troubled past, slumbering desires awaken and Gabriel will do anything to keep Moira from making a loveless marriage. Will buried secrets doom any hope for Moira and Gabriel to reconcile? Or has their painful time apart given them the courage and compassion to risk a second chance at love?
