Money. Romance. Attempted Murder.
Former British officer Valentine Calvert has retired from the army to take over his lands and title following his brother's death. Although a Viscount, the title is meaningless as his brother and his father before him have mismanaged the estate leaving him virtually penniless. His cousin advises him to marry well.
Rebekah Meadowes is headstrong and outspoken, but her family had a long-standing relationship with the Calverts, so Valentine approaches her first. It is a mutually beneficial arrangement. She will inherit his title; he will have money enough to rebuild the family fortune. The deal is made, but not before Val teaches Rebekah a few stinging lessons in curbing her temper and her tongue.
Soon, however, they confront a dangerous mystery. Val has suddenly become accident prone, and Rebekah is forced to take matters into her own hands to protect him. What began as a marriage of convenience becomes something more as the couple challenges a common enemy. Will they uncover the mystery in time? Will love win out in the end?
