She’s engaged, but all it took was one look from the new doctor for Leonora to fall passionately in love…
Leonora, the only daughter of the esteemed Crosby family, is stunned when she’s introduced to James at a party. It’s him—the handsome man who took her breath away when she first saw him on an icy road. She had heard that a new doctor was coming to the village clinic…but she never expected it to be this beautiful stranger! Leonora’s nerves are frazzled and a slow heat starts to burn inside her whenever he turns his azure eyes toward her. Why is she feeling such never-before-experienced passion? She’s supposed to focus on marrying her fiancé and supporting her struggling aristocratic family…
