Synopsis: A delightful tale about a young woman who discovers the things she never knew about herself to be deliciously exciting.
Who is Miss Gemma Smith? No one wishes to know more fervently than the orphaned Gemma herself. One day, a fateful letter sends her to London in search of her long-lost family and her brother—who doesn’t even know she exists. On her journey she will meet Miss Louisa Crookshanks, who impulsively decides to take Gemma under her wing. The meeting sets off an unexpected series of events that will elevate Gemma’s social status. As destiny flexes its grip, Gemma meets former naval officer Matthew Fallon, who is himself searching for the sister he lost. So far apart in other ways, Gemma and Matthew are soon drawn together by their desperate quests for their lost loved ones—and the blossoming of undeniable passion.
