Daisy Jenkins never expected to be anything more than a trespasser on the idyllic lawns of Marsden Castle. Then, suddenly, she was admitted into the magic circle of the Earl and Countess of Nottenstone, to await the arrival of the torious Lord Chatterton, her father--a stranger whose very name was foreign to her. She was Daisy Chatterton w, adrift in a sea of aristocratic sharks who seemed both to court and mock her. And why did the elegant Duke of Oxenden offer his protection to this newcomer who made him laugh at the very word love ? She was determined to prove there was such a thing as true love-- matter how hard or how far she had to search to find it.
