My dear child, you have lived in the lap of luxury all your life. You could no more earn a penny piece than fly over the moon! Kasia's father laughs scornfully. This is his justification for his decision to marry her off to a man she does not love to save her from fortune hunters. Kasia runs away to prove him wrong by working as governess to the Duke of Dreghorne's unruly nephew. As Kasia gains the trust of the child, she earns the respect and the growing affection of the lord. When she and the boy are kidnapped, the stakes are irrevocably raised and the duke's reputation as a dare-devil will be tested one final time. Will Kasia's father forgive her? Will Fate finally unite the hearts of Kasia and the Dare-Devil Duke?"
