After a New Year's Eve ball, Adrian Hawsley, Viscount Dere, swears off women and sets out in his curricle for his abandoned ancestral home on Dartmoor determined to take stock of his life. But a vicious snowstorm lands him and his tiger in the snowdrifts. In order to survive, Adrian has to find shelter--battling through the storm, carrying his unconscious groom, he manages to reach Mallard Cottage. However, the lady who opens the door is not the old woman Adrian had expected - but the one lady he's never forgotten. Shocked to his marrow - and chilled to the bone - Adrian literally falls at Abigail Woolley's feet.
