Baron William Hargreaves tries to hide his growing attraction to the beautiful blonde American, rumored to be wealthier than the Queen herself. It would never do for him to attach himself to an American.
But William is caught up in his own appalling disgrace at the revelation of a product of a youthful indiscretion. The only way to raise his son as a Hargreaves is to marry the child's mother, even though he cannot stand the sight of her.
A sudden twist in his extraordinary life offers one last chance at a life with Caroline—only to find her in the arms of another man.
