A matter only complicated further when she stumbles across a fellow guest in the middle of the night.

However, losing Mr. Bancroft would be disastrous to her sister's future. As her past begins to catch up with her, Eleanor desperately holds the Marquess at arm's length in an attempt to preserve her plans. As the house party draws to a close, she must choose between a safe bet or following her heart.
