On Sale: May 14, 2019
Add to Wish List
Timothy Mayfield has nearly given up on his search for a
wife. Though he is the picture of a fine, social gentleman,
Timothy wishes his finances provided a more stable
foundation. Then his Uncle Elliott presents to him a
solution: participate in his "marriage campaign," and upon
approval of his choice for a wife, Timothy's inheritance
will be his.
Freed from the constraints of having to marry for money,
Timothy is ready to marry for love instead. And he knows
exactly what he wants in a wife: youth, optimism, beauty,
blonde hair, fine-boned features, shapely shoulders, small
waist, blue eyes, button nose, solid fashion sense, a light
laugh, low voice, arched eyebrows, fair skin, elegant
fingers, quick wit, calm manner, and a dazzling smile.
His friend, Maryann Morrington, an heiress in her own right,
tells him outright that his expectations are ridiculous--no
such woman exists. Maryann had considered Timothy as a
potential suitor for a time, but then their relationship
shifted to friendship and she has avoided allowing herself
to have feelings for him again.
She agrees to help him find his "perfect wife," because
she's certain that the search will render nothing. Until it
does. Miss Shaw appears to fulfill every single item on
Timothy's list--unlike Maryann who has brown hair, brown
eyes, lacks delicate features, and possesses a laugh that is
But when Timothy and Miss Shaw begin courting, Timothy
realizes something profound. He'd rather spend his time with
Maryann. But can he trust his judgment when his heart has
led him wrong so many times before?
It is only when Maryann leaves the London season early, that
Timothy realizes that he had truly fallen in love with her
and that his list of requirements were nothing but fantasy.
If he hopes to build a strong relationship, Timothy must
convince Maryann that she is the very woman he'd been
looking for all alongbefore it is too late.
