Anna Maria, Ia to her family and friends, is twenty-five and still lives with the brother who raised her after their parents’ tragic death. Daniel is married now, and Ia wants nothing more than to be on her own and out from under his thumb. Resigned to being single, she is surprised when her brother’s business associate from across the pond comes to visit.

Douglas is quite taken with the lovely Ia and falls head over heels in love with her at first sight. But can he convince her to give him a chance? And what will she do when she learns that he intends to run his household the same way her brother does, with him as the head?

Publisher Notes: This sweet, 1957 romance contains a strong theme of power exchange.
