Lady Eirene Rowe-Weston has inherited a great fortune and a great dilemma. Every bachelor in London wishes to marry her, but she has vowed never to become any man’s bride. She has two choices, hide forever in the country or render herself unfit for marriage. She chooses the latter and hires one of London’s most celebrated rakes to see to the task.
Viscount Adrien Benoit is not all he appears or is rumored to be. When Lady Eirene offers him an exorbitant amount of money to ruin her, he counters and offers her a secret guaranteed to destroy him. The lady accepts, plans are made, but the moment of her ruination doesn’t quite go as arranged. Nothing ever does when love interferes.
