Finding herself under the unlikely guardianship of the kind but shambolic Duke of Holbrook, Tess Essex is suddenly faced with her duty: marry well and marry quickly. Once that's taken care of she can arrange matches for her three younger sisters: Annabel, Imogen and Josephine.
But just when everything looks like it might be in order Tess' own fiancé gets cold feet and one of her sisters elopes with a reckless young lord...
And is Tess really as sensible and proper as she thinks she is? Lucius Felton is a rogue whose own mother considers him irredeemable but he is delicious and obscenely wealthy... Surely she can't really be contemplating marriage to one of London's most infamous rakes?
Absurd as it seems Tess fears she may have fallen utterly and completely in love...
