1812 – England
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a lady of rank and distinction is not match for an impoverished preacher. Yet Damien Hathaway is entranced from the moment he spies Miss Lindsay Phillips entering his church. She doesn’t appear any different from the other pampered society ladies, and she’s betrothed to a gentleman of the ton. But Damien is determined to find the pure heart he’s sure exists underneath all the ruffles and lace. The unlikely friendship formed by Damien and Lindsay is a revelation to them both, but is frowned on by her father–and Damien’s parishioners. Torn between two worlds, the pair must trust their love can bridge the divide and conquer all.
