Inheriting his profligate family's debts along with the title, Lord Ian Sutcombe has no choice-he needs a rich wife, and Hannah Leeds, a wealthy cit's daughter, once cruelly betrayed and with no illusions about marrying for love, will do nicely. But marriage has surprises for them both, and as friendship blossoms into fragile love, they are forced to confront a rigid, snobbish society and vindictive people who would joyfully tear them apart. A greedy, grasping stepmother-in-law and a troublemaking ex-suitor add a fresh twist to this classic marriage-of-convenience tale that highlights the commoner/aristocrat clashes of the period. Layton (His Dark and Dangerous Ways) lives on Long Island, NY.
