On her 18th birthday in April 1557, Rose Bingley is given a diary by her mother. In it, she records her feelings, thoughts, and the great love she bears for her childhood sweetheart Oliver Moore, whom she secretly plans to marry.
Upon discovering that Lord Surrey has made plans to find her a suitable husband, Cassia vows secretly to sabotage his every attempt, as she has no desire to leave either Wenham Castle or her beloved guardian. Until she meets Graf Willhelm von Sachsen. The handsome German count is the first of Cassia's suitors to arouse her interest - and, she soon discovers, the first to stand up to her impudence by tossing her over his lap and giving her a sound spanking.
