Bridget Halifax-Stokes was giddy with the excitement of her season in London. Town had beckoned and her season came on the heels of the end of the war against the tyrant. All the handsome men were returning heroes. What better year to come out.
Her father thought it all nonsense. Her mother believed that it would be the best showing of any of her daughters. More lords available and luck that Bridget was just the perfect age.
All is fun and frivolity until Bridget literally crashes into Sir Patrick Hampton as he limps along the high street. A man she knew once well, now a stranger with dark and foreboding eyes.
