Two years earlier, Lord Nathaniel 'Nate' Swift, fell hopelessly in love with his best friend, the Duke of Ascot's, younger sister, Charlotte. His rakish ways, his friend's objection and their age difference made him certain that a courtship and a marriage could never take place. So Nate did the only thing he could, he left England for America and tried to forget Charlotte. After two years of experiencing the New World, Nate's world halts when he learns of Charlotte's impending marriage. He was foolish to think that he could ever forget his Charlotte. She was what he desired, what he ultimately coveted. He had to win her back. If only it was that easy.
