She knows that her father is deeply in debt. In return for the hand of his daughter, twice-widowed Mr. Holborn will pay all Lord Tilney's considerable debts.
At just 21, little Lady Destiny Tilney is very beautiful, with bright red-gold curls, blue eyes, and a shy nature. She’s an obedient daughter, who’s always done whatever is expected of her.
Destiny has no recourse when her father tells her that she’s to marry Thomas Holborn, a 50-year-old widower with six children. She knows that her father is deeply in debt. In return for the hand of his daughter, twice-widowed Mr. Holborn will pay all Lord Tilney’s considerable debts.
The wedding date is set. Then Destiny stops being obedient. She runs away to her grandmother’s friend, Lady Hollet, at Follyjohn Manor.
There she meets a retired military gentleman, Major James Campbell, who is Lady Hollet’s new steward.
Although she’s drawn to the major immediately, Destiny knows that it’s only a matter of time before her father appears and drags her away to her marriage.
