When Kit Kydd rescues Susanna Fair from an abduction attempt, it seems to be Fate: Kit needs to appear settled to be made his great-aunt's heir, and Susanna is an actress. By pretending to be engaged for the duration of a visit to Lady Penfold, Susanna will be hidden and Kit can protect her from further danger. But Lady Penfold lives in the horse-racing town of Newmarket, which holds the secret of Susanna's scandalous past. And the dishonourable Rafe Warwick has two thousand guineas riding on making Susanna his mistress - and he doesn't take defeat lightly. And then Susanna's travelling theatre company need her to perform in public one last time. And Susanna really, really, hadn't intended falling in love with Kit.--BOOK JACKET

She also has to turn her untidy Cambridge house into a B & B to make ends meet and then counteract the effect of regular theatrical guests on her impressionable teenage children. Alan doesn't help by making disapproving incursions with his saccharine laden new partner. Beth's real worry though is Owen Pendragon, a touring character actor with wicked hazel eyes, a quirky sense of humour and a tendency to walk around her home in his bathrobe
