The only burden heavier than past regrets is to forget them.
After her father's sudden death, Charlotte Winslow must give up her highborn lifestyle to fend for herself on the outskirts of London. Painting under an assumed name, Charlotte makes just enough to live happily in a humble cottage—just herself and a cat named Rex.

The very man who scorned her years before and his meddling mother make themselves comfortable in Charlotte’s small house as he recovers his health and memory. But the longer they stay in her cottage, the more Lord Rexford's thoughts seem to linger on his self-sufficient, no-nonsense host. Could it be that he remembers more than he lets on?
