She isn’t accustomed to attention. He isn’t used to being denied. Romance is never simple, but when worlds collide in this classic novel from bestselling author Sally Goldenbaum, true love can seem unimaginable.
While playing the part of a glamorous contessa for a murder mystery weekend, Halley Finnegan finds herself in the arms of dashing baron Nick Harrington. For the first time in her life, Halley feels captivating, enchanting, a worthy companion to a wealthy, elegant man. But beneath the costume, Halley is just a nobody, while Nick remains a baron. After the festivities, the fantasy is over; Halley’s simply not in his class.
After Nick tracks down his mystery lady, Halley is sure that he’ll discover his mistake and run for the hills. Instead, he is all charm, teasing smiles, and gentle caresses, as if he never stepped out of character. How can she trust that this gentleman is the real Nick, and not just a part he plays? And how could Nick fall for a woman he wouldn’t have given the time of day a week before? Unless they start being honest with each other, Halley and Nick will lose each again—this time, forever.
