The Ring on Her FingerBook - 2003
When her fiancT abandons heiress Lucinda Hollander, leaving her to take the rap for a crime that she did not commit, Lucinda flees, masquerading as a housekeeper at a large estate, where she encounters Max Hogan, mysterious "chauffeur" with his own secrets to hide. Original.
Heiress Lucinda Hollander decides to get engaged -- to a man who thrusts a rock on her finger and promptly disappears -- leaving Lucinda to take the rap for a crime she didn't commit.
Lucinda goes on the lam, and even though she's never held -- or used -- a dust mop she goes "underground" as a housekeeper on a large estate. After all, she knows her way around big houses, and making floors sparkle is a whole lot better than making license plates.
She quickly figures there's something suspicious going on in the servants' quarters -- especially with Max Hogan, "the car guy." He's strong, sexy -- and sure knows how to work with his hands. But he's more than a little silent about his past, which makes Lucinda wonder what he's up to ... and what will happen when her secret comes out. Still, she hopes they can have a future together ...
If only she could get that darn ring off her finger.
