The Latest Love Story

Thomas Merrit, the Earl of Davingdale, wants nothing to do with Society. His fondest wish -- to rebuild his dilapidated barn for his newly acquired collection of horses. Until he meets the enigmatic "Miss Ophelia Cummings" who is only in town for three days. Their paths seredipitously cross twice and Thomas is drawn to her like no one before.

Fate deals a cruel blow on the third day when the chance to see the delightful Miss Cummings one last time is thwarted by mere moments. Thomas will do whatever it takes to discover if what he feels for her is real, but it may be too late.

This short story is the companion piece to A HUSBAND FOR MISS TRENT, written from Davingdale's perspective.
