When Lady Octavia Radleigh's grandfather confesses he must sell their ancestral home to pay off his debts, Octavia vows she'll do whatever it takes to keep it in the family - even open it to the public as an upmarket hotel. Unfortunately, she'll need money to finance her venture, and that means turning to the upstart Jake Bentley, a self-made financial guru who wants Radleigh for himself.
As if sharing her beloved home with a nouveau riche interloper isn't bad enough, someone starts sabotaging her restoration of Radleigh. Embroiled in a bitter tangle of resentment and paranoia, they must come together to discover their true enemy, before Radleigh is lost to them both.
