Indeed, events contrive to bring back into her life the haughty Lady Ursula, a friend of her mother's, and Hatty's main source of grief at home. But why should this forbidding woman be traveling so far to attend the funeral of a distant cousin? Rumors run riot and, in an unexpected twist of fortune, Hatty soon finds herself in competition with Lady Ursula for the attentions of a certain lord....
