When ambitious solicitor Norman Wynford-Scott is ousted from his legal studies due to a holiday revel spun out of control, he adapts a new plan of running for the Parliament seat of a local village. Only trouble is, the same irresistible woman who ruined his good name is thwarting his campaign at every turn.
Widowed and drink-addicted, Lady Elsa Fay has retreated to the family village of Fleck to regain her sobriety. She's distracting herself from her troubles--and her memories of the one passionate night she shared with Norman--by organizing the Parliament campaign of her husband's cousin. Until Norman arrives intent on winning the seat for himself.
Shamed and determined, Elsa will do all she can to send her former friend and now adversary packing--even if it means breaking her own heart in the process.
