Lady Grace Mabry has the terrible fortune of having a fortune, and now faced with finding a suitable husband, she can’t tell what the men are more in love with: her or her money. When she turns to her once childhood friend, the now worldly Duke of Lovingdon, to help her find true love, Grace can’t help but wish he’d break his stodgy vow against matrimony and meet her at the altar.
After the mess his father left behind, Henry Sidney Stanford has no interest in marrying. In fact, he’s decided to let the shameful Stanford line die with him. So what’s the harm in helping a family friend find a proper suitor? Heaven knows she needs his help, especially considering the ghastly choices she’s been making. But as he demonstrates how a man who loves a woman should behave..
.Henry soon finds that the pretense is easing toward reality and his heart is making decisions of its own. When a desperate suitor creates a scandal that will force Grace to marry him, Lovingdon must accept that the sins of the father are not the sins of the son-or risk losing the woman he loves.
