Will a marriage of convenience solve their problems… or create new ones?
Thea Winslow is a woman with a problem — how to save the girls’ school which means everything to her. Will Archer is a man with two problems — how to preserve his family’s heritage from the vengeful old earl who appears determined to bring it all down… and how to deal with Thea.
The answer for both of them seems to be a makeshift marriage — until their inconvenient arrangement leads to the biggest problem of all!
“Part of what I like best about Regency romances is society’s rules — like how an unexpected death could throw an entire family into disarray. British law meant that estates passed only down the male line, even if that meant younger brothers, nephews, cousins. But what if that person had never expected to inherit, and so hadn’t followed society’s expectations? What happens when someone who’s essentially middle-class suddenly stands to inherit a title?” — Leigh Michaels
