A tale of forbidden Victorian passion. For years, Daniel has devoted himself to waiting on Frederick, Lord Atterbury’s handsome young heir, admiring and even loving him from afar. Now the Atterburys have announced that they will be holding a grand dinner party, and rumor has it that Frederick will be announcing his engagement to a prominent young woman from a neighboring manor. Daniel knows that marriage will take Frederick away from him forever, a prospect he can hardly bear to think about. He can see only one solution—the time has come to reveal his true feelings. Still, he is only a servant. It’s impossible that a wealthy young man like Frederick would ever return his love…or are there secrets in Atterbury Manor even Daniel doesn’t know about?
