"[Camp] is renowned as a storyteller who touches the hearts of her readers time and time again." —RT Book Reviews
Wanted: Wife of good family; attractive, calm, reasonable and mature…for marriage of convenience. Pleasant conversationalist preferred.
Simon “Devil” Dure is as cynical about love as spirited Charity Emerson is innocent of it. But she is certain they will make a good match, and Simon finds Charity so charming that he believes her. Their ensuing engagement stuns society--but Charity's big ideas, warm laughter and kind heart soon cause Simon to fall more deeply for her than he ever thought possible.
Soon, her vivacious spirit begins to loosen the shackles around Simon's heart. But unbeknownst to them both, a treacherous trap lies ahead--not to mention a shocking act of murder that will put both their courage and their love to the ultimate test.
