"An emotional tale of finding love against all odds."—Kelly Bowen

Part One of the Corsets and Carriages serial novels

“The Hall . . . the estate . . .”

“Will all have to be sold.”

After her fortune is squandered by her drunken gambler of a father, Catherine Davenport must accept the charity of a cousin she has never met. But the household of Phillip Davenport is anything but welcoming. Catherine barely survives a brutal attack that shatters her body and severs her memory. A harrowing rescue on the London docks takes her into the home of two brothers: Rian and Liam Connor.
“Trust him . . . he will not hurt you.”
Mystery and scandal surround Rian, recently returned from a plantation in the Americas. As Catherine struggles to reclaim her identity, she must fight her overwhelming desire for the man who saved her life. But Rian, she learns, has come home for a wedding, and Catherine fears her enigmatic rescuer is already spoken for. How can a woman with no memory, no family, no home, hope to win the heart of London’s most intriguing rogue?


“The opening of Smith’s Corsets and Carriages series offers plenty of rich settings and a wealth of emotions for readers to savor. The connection between her victimized heroine and erstwhile hero is intriguing and provides a good deal of interest for the future of this series…There’s plenty of drama and scheming.” —RT Book Reviews
