Lord Philip Ravenshaw is through with love. He has spent the better part of his youth as a hopeless romantic, only to be met with heartbreak again and again. Refusing to wallow in self-pity this time, Lord Philip decides to move deep into the Dorset countryside to breed horses in business with a local tradesman.
When Miss Olivia Winter learns that her father’s new business partner is a lord from London, she is less than thrilled. Her one and only disastrous Season in London has left her with the bitter opinion that aristocrats are the most unpleasant sort of people one could ever have the misfortune to meet. For the sake of her father’s business, Olivia decides to pack away her hatred of nobility and greet Lord Philip with as much grace as she can muster.
But once Lord Philip mistakes Olivia’s fumbled attempts at hospitality as shameless flirting, and accuses her of social climbing, tempers begin to flare—until one day, their temper turns to passion. Though he tries to fight it, Philip’s love for Olivia begins to grow, but Olivia has her doubts, especially when a jealous debutant threatens to ruin Olivia’s reputation and her chances with Philip . . . forever.
