With a father like Landsdowne, Nicholas, Marquess of Trubridge, does not need enemies. Being forced to marry a woman of his father?s choosing is the last straw for Nicholas, which is what brings him to the door of the most respected and successful matchmaker in London.
Lady Belinda Featherstone knows all about rakes and fortune hunters. She has married one. Her late husband gives her the perfect reason never to trust in love and marriage. Yet, she now makes her money propagating just that.
Handing a young American heiress over to a man like Nicholas is the last thing Belinda can see herself doing. So why is she now trying to find the man a wife? Young girls are easily blinded by men with his charm and good looks, yet Belinda knows firsthand just how quickly the fantasy fades. With eyes only for Belinda, Nicholas is having a hard time concentrating on the job at hand, even though he has nothing to offer her. She deserves a man who can stand on his own. One she can respect. Right now Nicholas is far from being that man.
Nicholas finds himself caught in a vicious circle of act and react with his father. The only way to break the cycle is to toss in a woman who could write a book on class and propriety. Belinda makes Nicholas take notice of his life. With it, the story takes off. His charm and wit are incredibly sexy, but it is his kindness and humility that makes the reader fall as hard and fast as Belinda.
