Lady Marian Lawrence is in London to snare a rich husband to save her family from ruin-a difficult task given her biting wit and lack of beauty. Hiding her true self, Marian is about to win the wealthy and amiable Lord Darley-until the detestable Reginald Montague blocks their path to the altar.
Reginald Montague has vowed to never marry and is determined to keep his bestfriend Darley from being snared by a fortune hunter.
A master of subtle stratagem, Reginald sets out to transform Marian’s dislike for him into desire and is caught in his own trap even as Marian struggles to keep her true self a secret and her heart her own.
“A deliciously light-hearted traditional Regency.”
