Have you ever been so desperate that you would do literally
anything for money? This is the tragic situation Giselda finds
herself in, with no money for an operation her younger brother
desperately needs to save his life, and no one to turn to. Ground
down by poverty she plucks up her courage to offer the only thing
she has of value - her purity. Choking back her pride and knowing
that she is about to forfeit his respect, she approaches her
wealthy employer, the handsome Earl of Lyndhurst, who is recovering
from his injuries sustained in the Battle of Waterloo. Appalled
that this frail and innocent young girl should be faced with such a
terrible decision, he vows to find a way to help her without
offending her dignity. He knows she would never accept his charity,
and she refuses to confide in him the reasons for her family's
poverty. Intrigued by the air of mystery about a girl of obvious
quality reduced to the role of maidservant, the Earl decides to
discover why a beautiful young woman of strong principles has been
reduced to such extreme measures. Discovering her to have gentle
hands and wonderful nursing skills he employs her as his private
nurse and turns his sharp mind to uncovering her secrets - and
learns his own lessons in love in the process.
