Lady Tabitha and Lord Yarmouth have long been friends. With the death of her first husband two years behind her, Lady Tabitha intends to enjoy society without restriction. However, when Lord Yarmouth comes to her with a desperate plea, she must consider whether or not she will put her freedom on the line in order to help him.
Oliver, the Earl of Yarmouth, has found himself in an impossible situation.
Stipulated by his late father’s will that he must be engaged before a certain time in order to gain the rest of his fortune, he begs Lady Tabitha to step in as his betrothed, even for a short time. But when a solicitor informs him that he must be wed rather than only engaged, Oliver begins to panic.
What will he do now?
