Miles Cavanagh just wants to be in the Shires hunting, but instead he is unwilling guardian to a twenty-year-old heiress. He hopes this will be merely a symbolic position, but that's before he discovers that Felicity Monahan is hell-bent on marrying a fortune-hunting wretch. And before he begins to fall in love with her.
Despite her own growing love for Miles, Felicity has excellent reasons for her choice. Miles is determined to thwart her. Equal in will and ruthlessness, they are soon on a course that is dangerous indeed.
