A traditional Regency by award winning author April Kihlstrom.
Calista's father, in life, never wished to dispense with her services as his assistant. In death, however, he has contrived a plan to force her into marriage as quickly as possible. His will not only thus tries to dispose of her future, but Mr. Frederick Leverton's as well.
Unfortunately for his scheme, Mr. Leverton is already married but his friend, John Witton is not. When Mr. Witton agrees to accompany his friend to visit Leverton's new wards, he has no notion he will fall in love with one of the daughters of the house. But is Calista the sweet young woman she seems or is she as scheming and manipulative as the woman he and Leverton both once loved?
