Lord and Lady Huntington step off the train where they spent their honeymoon. Lucy is both excited and terrified as their carriage draws them ever closer to Hunter's Ridge, where she will finally meet Lucas' family. An accident on the road does nothing to soothe her shattered nerves until her husband promises that he will always be there, always protect her, and always love her. She has learned so much at his hands during their short marriage as he patiently teaches her what he expects both from his wife and from his special Little One.
The size and magnificence of his family estate overwhelm her, but she finds comfort in the warm, loving welcome of his family. Molly, her nanny, has learned a great deal as well and assures Lucy that all will be fine as she begins her life at Hunter's Ridge. Lucy might have believed her if it hadn't been for one person. Lucinda, the governess, doesn't hesitate to let Lucy know that she is unwanted. She makes it her duty to assure that Lucy's time spent as mistress of Hunter's Ridge is short. Lucy's fears overwhelm her when she believes her husband is oblivious to Lucinda's actions. Will he remember his promise to protect her? Will he remember he swore that she would be safe and loved among the people who occupied Hunter's Ridge? Can she trust him as he continues her lessons in both discipline and passion, or will she find that the dual paths she vowed to take lead only to heartbreak?
