Miles Cavanagh just wants to be in the Shires hunting, but
instead he is unwilling guardian to a twenty-year-old
heiress. He hopes this will be merely a symbolic position,
but that's before he discovers that Felicity Monahan is
hell-bent on marrying a fortune-hunting wretch. And before
he begins to fall in love with her.
Despite her own growing love for Miles, Felicity has
excellent reasons for her choice. Miles is determined to
thwart her. Equal in will and ruthlessness, they are soon
on a course that is dangerous indeed.
