A beautiful commoner-or the missing heiress to a fortune?

Lovely Perdita, an orphaned girl at an inn on the wilds of Dartmoor, has no memory of her past or life beyond the dark confines of her world...except in strange and beguiling dreams.

A disillusioned earl, embittered by tragedy.

But is it true love that awaits her-or tragedy?
