Exiled from polite society, and forever banned from the world her mother dreamed for her, Kit Langdon disappeared into the night, vowing to extract herself from that world permanently and to stay away from the wretched being who caused it all. The man she thought she fell in love with. Years later, and unbeknownst to him, she saves him in a tavern brawl. Aiden hires the stable boy who saved him from a good trussing, vowing to help the boy any way he could. Little did he know that the "boy" would disrupt his well-organized life in all of her attempts to remain hidden. Will Kit ever get back to her chosen life, or will she fall in love all over again with the very man who left her heartbroken?
