From the author of the beloved romance classic The Windflower comes a novel of fortune, fate, and fiery passion.
A resourceful young gypsy living by her wits, Liza knows what proper-bred Englishmen think about women of her kind. So when she's caught trespassing on the estate of the esteemed Earl of Brockhaven, she expects no mercy. Fortunately for her, the master of the house-the impossibly handsome Lord Stewart-finds the lovely Liza to be utterly enchanting, a wild gypsy rose just waiting to be plucked . . .
Stewart soon learns that there's more to this girl than meets the eye. No ordinary vagabond, Liza displays a fierce intelligence that sets his heart on fire-and she wears a mysterious medallion that arouses his curiosity. An old family heirloom, it is Liza's only link to a long-lost fortune. But the poor girl can't even think about money-when she would gladly trade it all for one reckless night in Stewart's arms.
