James Fitzroy, the Duke of Candover might be the most eligible bachelor in the Prince Regent’s Royal Entourage, but he is the least likely to ever marry. Not only did he miss his own wedding after the most outrageous bachelor party of the century, but it is his second botched date with everlasting connubial bliss.
Isabelle Tremont, the young Duchess of March, has been secretly in love with Candover since the day she overheard the handsome, austere duke (ten years her senior) praising her to her father many years ago. What Isabelle doesn’t know is that on his deathbed, her father asked Candover to ensure she married well and with someone her own age to avoid the unhappiness he and his much younger wife suffered.
With all of London still decrying the excesses of the notorious Royal Entourage and demanding reformation, Prinny orders the remaining members of his entourage, including Candover and Isabelle, to find suitable mates. In this game of hearts, Candover and Isabelle must confront all their ideas concerning duty, pride, and happiness to win at love.
