Cover made by @xxinloves. 28-year-old William Rochester is the spitting depiction of a perfect gentleman. Kind, wealthy, and very loyal to those who he loves. However, he is a gentleman of the humblest manner. He doesn't believe that money is everything. 18-year-old Clara Hayward is very particular when it comes to men. She desires someone who is kind, handsome, and generous. She doesn't mind if the gentleman is wealthy, but she does mind if he is arrogant. She will not stand for that. When William and Clara meet at an afternoon tea party, held by one of their mutual acquaintances, sparks fly immediately. The two of them know they have found each other. But Clara's cousin Edward Brighton doesn't want anyone to touch her. The young man desires Clara for himself, and he will do everything in his power to make sure she belongs to him.
