Charlotte Lydian desperately wanted to see her nephew Randal married. And so she used quiet, shy Beth as a pawn in her game, maneuvering Beth into becoming Randal's assistant. But Charlotte's plan worked only partially -- Beth fell in love with the icy-cool historian while Randal avoided romantic entanglements at all cost.

When this plan fell through, Charlotte invited a second girl to join them at the Lydian family mansion. Avis was beautiful, wealthy, and very sophisticated. Poor Beth felt like a drab moth next to a dazzling butterfly --and she was forced to become an unwilling participant in the relationship between Avis and Randal. Only now Beth was a pawn in Avis's game....

When Beth's father died, it was expected that she would live with her brother and sister-in-law. But instead she decided to work in Devon, to prove to herself that she could stand alone. It was unfortunate that such a shy, diffident girl should have to encounter a man like Randal, for to cope with him even a practised charmer would need all her wiles.
