bachelor, makes a promise to his dying godfather. He will
find his childhood friend, Gemma, a husband in three
months...or marry her himself.

Gemma. She's happiest on her grandfather's estate. Most

pretense of Gemma helping his sister plan her upcoming
nuptials. He has three months to work his magic. During all
the balls and soirees, there's no shortage of men vying for
Gemma's attention. However, she is not interested in other
men, and Sebastian finds himself thwarting off suitors
because he wants Gemma all for himself. What a dilemma for
a confirmed bachelor. Or is it?
Gemma has plans of her own. While she works on melting
Sebastian's heart, she burns herself into his soul. Read
this delightful novel and watch the sparks fly as a good
man is brought to his knees by love.
