Felicity's father, part of a Spanish dukedom, never recognized her as part of his regal family. But upon his death he leaves his home to her, so she sets off for Spain to investigate. But when she arrives in the crowded airport, who's there to meet her but the man who had succeeded him as Duque:, Vidal y Salvadores. His gaze is cold, and he's clearly still under the misconception that she's a loose woman due to a misunderstanding from seven years earlier. Her burgeoning love for him was destroyed back then, and the atmosphere between them is still tense. When he suddenly kisses her, she knows it's a mistake. Her traitorous heart, however, has other ideas. But will Vidal's eyes always be filled with such contempt for her?
