For Love . . . or Money? Miss Ada Westlake doesn’t consider herself a fool . . . but everyone else seems to. Though her family is nearly destitute, she has just turned down another proposal from the best catch in the county. Chas -- otherwise known as Viscount Ashmead -- has asked many times before and Ada, fearful of ruining their friendship with a marriage of convenience, has made him swear never to ask again. Ada also refuses to hang on to a bag of coins she found in the family orchard, convinced the money is ill-gotten. She appears determined to defeat the possibility of financial salvation at every turn. But Ada doesn’t mean to be foolish -- only to uphold her principles . . .
Now, Chas must convince “Addled Ada” to see reason -- about the money, and most importantly, about him. Because the greatest treasure of all is true love.
