Not every fairy tale begins with a prince or a princess...
When Miss Philippa Damson runs away from home to Pomeroy Castle, she is far from a princess...she's an extraordinary beauty with ordinary dreams - to live a quiet life as a nursemaid.
Jonas Berwick, rakish son of a grand duke, has vowed never to wed. He offers Philippa everything - except his hand in marriage.
Philippa has stormed the castle, but now she faces an impossible challenge: to win the love of a prince, she may have to risk everything that makes her a lady.
Will the sacrifice of her honour be too high a price to pay?
