Caprice has grown up in the Australian Outback and received the best education in Switzerland. When her widowed father dies, he leaves behind a mighty inheritance from his uncle, including an estate in England. When Caprice arrives at the manor, she is surprised to find a man called Richard Winterton living there, with no intention of leaving. Furthermore, he has a rather questionable reputation with women. Still, Caprice finds herself thinking of the man, and to her surprise, with a stirring passion. The gripping love story dates back to the 20th century and was written under Pamela Kent, a pseudonym of the prolific romance writer Ida Pollock. A must-read for fans of literary romance and surprising twists of fate.
