Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new standalone novel.
 
The day I showed up to Dax Moody’s sprawling home, I had no idea what was coming.
 
As a traveling massage therapist, I was used to entering the houses of strangers.
 
But this assignment was different from any before it.
 
From the outside, I’d correctly assumed the owner was rich. What I didn’t realize was that he would be younger than I’d imagined, single, stunningly gorgeous, and mysterious.
 
Despite the fact that Dax had booked a massage, it never actually happened, since our first appointment was unexpectedly cut short by a comedy of errors.
 
Certain I’d never see him again after that day, I’d done nothing but think about the captivating man.
 
To my surprise, he called a second time. That appointment, we talked a lot, developing a stronger connection. But once again, there was no actual massage.
 
The man I now affectionately called “Moody” kept calling me to come back.
 
It took three times before I finally gave him the massage he’d ordered. Let’s just say it was challenging to keep things professional. I was extremely attracted to Dax, and by that time, I was falling hard.
 
Eventually, I’d find out why he’d been so aloof, the reason why he and I could never be together.
 
Our story was supposed to end there, but it didn’t.
 
Instead, I was left perpetually longing for a forbidden man.

    The Duke of Laverdale is ambitious to be appointed Master of the Horse and the new 
    Queen Adelaide is determined that behaviour at Court should be moral after the licentiousness of King George IV.
    	The Duke therefore ends his affaire de coeur with the enchanting Lady Sybil Mersham and drops his ballet dancer mistress as well.
    	Up to now he has been determined not to be married, but he now decides to become respectable and find a suitable bride as befits his standing.	
    	As he has always avoided debutantes, he asks the Marquis of Coleburn, whom he has known since he was a boy, to help him.
    	The Marquis is delighted and tells the Duke that he has the perfect wife for him in his beautiful daughter Oleta, who would have been a debutante by now but for family mourning.
    	The Duke arranges to visit the Marquis, who returns home to tell his daughter that she is a very lucky girl.
    	Oleta, however, is horrified at the idea of marrying a man she has never seen and who obviously cannot be in love with her.  She is very romantic and loves the country especially the woods, which have a magical influence on her and she talks to them when she rides through them on her beloved horse, Apollo.
    	When the Marquis tells her that she cannot refuse the Duke, even if he has to drag her to the altar, Oleta runs away to her old Nanny in Norfolk, having no idea of the dangers she might face on the journey.
    	When the Duke arrives to stay with the Marquis, he is appalled to learn that, because she is afraid of him, Oleta has ridden off on her own.  He then follows her as he has a much faster horse than anyone else.
    	How the Duke finds Oleta in a dangerous predicament and how he saves her.
    	How, not knowing who he is, she is impressed by his intelligence, his kindness and his bravery.
    	And how, when they finally escape from horse-thieves, he takes her to a place where they can be alone and how there they can both dream the same dream of love, is all told in this thrilling romance by BARBARA CARTLAND.
