Abstract:

An outsider among Newport's graceful debutantes, modest Anne Foster was the perfect choice to fulfill the desires of at least one man. But Henry Owen's intentions were far from honorable-marriage was merely his last recourse to secure his inheritance. For a time it gave Anne a chance to dream. Until she was abandoned and discovered her first love's true motive....In a world where beauty defines society, the perfect wife has devised the perfect revenge: become a jewel among her peers, draw her errant husband back into her arms...and break his heart. Yet nothing is as simple as it seems-and the secrets that once destroyed a perfect love, may be the very secrets that can save it......
