Miss Harriet Lockhart has been anticipating her debut into London Society since she was a little girl. When her father’s new position with the admiralty sees their return to England after a longtime post in India, Harriet finally has a chance to find a suitable—and suitably rich—husband. Mr. Foote seems the ideal candidate: well-mannered, well-groomed, and wealthy. But her plans go awry when she is whisked onto the dance floor by none other than handsome naval captain Patrick Sloane, a man she has known and despised for years. Thanks to Patrick’s interference, Mr. Foote departs without explanation—or proposal.

Despite her disappointment at finishing the Season without a husband, Harriet soon finds herself in frequent company with the very man who foiled her plans. But Patrick proves something of a surprise, as does her growing attachment to him. She knows that unless she resists her feelings, she will end up just like her mother: a lonely and heartbroken naval wife. But when the truth of the past is revealed, Harriet must find the courage to trust her heart or risk losing the promise of true love forever.
