She’s open-hearted and guileless, but he’s been fooled before. Twice!
Brilliance Diamond is one of a kind amongst her siblings. Unpredictable, some might say feather-brained, but always with the best intentions. Alas, when she says aloud things that others only dare think, she ends up in the suds time and again—until an impulsive act leads her directly into the arms of her prince charming.
Lord Vincent Hewitt, parliamentarian and pianist, seems to have an unerring ability to put his trust in the wrong person. When he meets a sweet lady who is both honest and candid, his battered spirit starts to heal. After all, she would never consider deceiving him. Would she?
Determined to help the reticent musician, Brilliance unwittingly sets off a chain of events leading to betrayal and lies… and her own devastating heartbreak. Will the treachery in Vincent’s past destroy any chance for their sparkling happily-ever-after?
