A delightful story of an unlikely pair who are about to discover what they have in common, in this classic romance by New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter.

When Brant and Daphne meet, sparks fly - even if they barely understand each other's language. A prim Englishwoman and an American football hero may not have anything in common...but with the right chemistry, their marriage of convenience might just transform Daphne into a confident woman and Brant into the lord of the manor.
