Don't be so dramatic!
Gavin DeWitt has given up a career on the stage to take his place among the respectable gentry of Crosspatch Corners. His older sister has married quite well, and now it's Gavin's job to ensure he and his younger siblings make an excellent impression on polite society too. He's handsome, witty, charming--and quietly dying inside--but nonetheless playing the role of country gentleman desperately well.
Will it be kisses or curtains?
Enter Mrs. Rose Roberts, a widow from Gavin's theatrical past. She broke his heart when last they parted, but oddly enough, he broke her heart too. Can they piece together what really happened and forge a future together, despite the forces of mischief and mayhem plotting more fiercely than ever to keep them apart?
