The Marquess of Tregaron returns to London after eight years of self imposed exile. His unfaithful wife was killed when she fell from the balcony of his London house and it was whispered that he had pushed her. To get rid of the memories of that bad marriage and to prepare for a new wife, Tregaron employs the firm of Buchanan and Buchanan, relatively unknown Scottish architects, to completely remake the house.
Tregaron finds himself fascinated with Catherine Buchanan, neice to the two Buchanans and who is forever hanging about the house during the renovations. What he does not know is that the architect behind Buchanan and Buchanan is Cate, not her uncles who are impractical artists. Cate thinks Tregaron is too brooding and makes her uncomfortable, but his approval for this project is vital if the family business is to succeed. Cate cannot let him discover who the real architect is. But she keeps meeting him at the house and at social events while chaperoning her younger sister. The attraction between them grows and her secret gets harder and harder to conceal.
