Alex Madison at twenty-five knows more about animals and country life than about the world of men, in spite of her striking good looks. When she takes a post as secretary and companion to the elegant journalist Dorinda Raynham she is quite bowled over by the combined charm of the Raynham family. Only Dorinda's son Nigel seems rude and hostile.

But Alex is to discover, rather painfully, that all that glitters is not gold, and that the handsome and friendly Bruce might be crueller than Nigel.

To a girl who felt more at home with animals than people, Alexandra was naturally dazzled by the gay, carefree life of the wealthy Raynham family - and especially by handsome, sophisticated Bruce Raynham.

Bruce drew her deeper into the Raynham way of life - and away from Nigel, the family outcast. Whenever Alexandra and Nigel were together, he would warn her about his own family. Although she was sure she loved Bruce, Nigel's presence was overpowering. Was Nigel's hatred contaminating her own emotions - or was there more to the Raynhams than met the eye ...?
