Brand gained a dukedom by betrothal to a family friend's daughter. He grew into the title as she became a woman. To avoid the marriage, he steps into a trap sprung by his best friend's sister. But when he sees the fiancée he's avoided for years, he discovers that she has become what her father said she'd be - his Eden without the apple. But he chose the apple. Is their paradise lost?
