White Lilac

When fog leaves the Duke of Marazion stranded at a bleak inn, he soothes his restless soul with a brandy, a book and a roaring fire. A glittering figure amongst London Society, the rich and handsome Duke has everything he could ever want – apart from true love. As he sits, determined to continue his journey as soon as possible, he cannot foresee the consequences of answering a late night knock at his door.
Astonished to find a young woman alone and in distress, he naturally takes on the role of her rescuer. Calming her frightened tears, he discovers that lovely runaway, Ilitta, is not only a talented artist but also a perceptive girl whose judgment he can immediately trust.
Offering his protection and an introduction into the coveted London art world in exchange for her instinctive response to his new business partners, they set off together. As refreshing as a spring morning in comparison to the worldly-wise beauties he usually spends time with, the Duke is amused and then enchanted by his unlikely new friend.
Determined to discover the secrets behind Ilitta's decision to run away, the Duke hopes that soon she will accept his sensible advice and return home.
But just as the Duke discovers his true feelings, the seductive charm of a tempting Comtesse forces him to make a decision that will change his life forever.

“You are not one of those new thinkers,” he asked, “who I hear are ranting against the killing of animals as if they were Buddhists and think the whole population should eat grass!”
