After an exhausting Season spent at the mercy of the whispering Ton, Bath’s first annual music festival offers Charity the perfect escape: freedom to indulge her true passion and play the pianoforte to her heart’s content. That is, until their insufferably rude, though undeniably handsome, neighbour tells her to keep the “infernal racket” to a minimum.
Hugh Danby, Baron Cadgwith, is in Bath to heal hidden wounds, both mental and physical. He may think he’s finally put an end to the noise next door, but he has no idea what he’s begun. The more he discovers about Charity, the more he finds her bothersome, vexing, and . . . inexplicably enchanting. Before long, Hugh suspects that even if his body heals, it’s his heart that might end up broken.
