Miss Juliet Stanton is very tired of her mother pushing one gentleman of worth after another onto her. She finds them all to be too arrogant and condescending. In her opinion, having a good heart and an ounce of sympathy for other people are far more admirable traits.
When her father takes on a handsome, new apprentice in his apothecary shop, Juliet cannot deny the attraction. But Mr. Robins turns out to be a dark horse with more secrets than she could ever know.
Will Juliet be able to get past them all to find the man underneath? And will it be a man worth finding?
