What happens when a carefree, disreputable,
stone–broke bachelor is forced to find a wife in a
hurry? He hires a matchmaker, of course. What happens when
the matchmaker doesn't want to help him? Well, that's when
the fun begins...
Nicholas Stirling, Marquess of Trubridge, loves his life
just as it is: dissolute, scandalous, and deuced good fun.
His father, the Duke of Landsdowne is not amused, and when
he cuts off Nicholas' trust fund, the fun–loving
marquess is forced to find an alternate source of
income—in other words, he has to marry an heiress.
Every new–money American heiress knows Lady
Belinda Featherstone is the key to social acceptance. Once a
new–money nobody herself, Belinda discovered
first–hand how heartbreaking the game of love and
matrimony could be after a reprobate British earl married
her for her money. Now a respectable widow, Belinda has
become England's most successful matchmaker, guiding young
American heiresses through the hazards of the London season
and helping them to find husbands worthy of them. To her
mind, the Marquess of Trubridge is nothing but a
fortune–hunting scoundrel and she has no intention of
allowing him to charm his way into any American girl's
heart, including her own.
