Laura Foster is a hopeless romantic. It is her most endearing characteristic, yet consistently leads her into trouble. Friends and family look on with amused tolerance - until Laura's inability to tell reality from romantic dreams causes betrayal and a broken heart. Taking refuge in Norfolk, Laura is bitterly aware that her rose-tinted glasses have to go. She swears off men, and all things romantic, for good - until she meets Nick, the estate manager of a huge stately home. But Nick has a secret too. And it's one that Laura, however much she tries, can't get past her prejudice about. Just as she was stubbornly a die-hard romantic, so Laura is stubborn about there being no future for her and Nick. But will he manage to change her mind?
