Publisher's Summary

USA Today bestselling author Julia London, "a gifted and versatile author" (Publishers Weekly), introduces a sexy, wildly romantic and emotionally charged new trilogy in which three aristocratic young ladies, upon discovering they are destitute, resort to desperate means to keep up appearances...and find the husbands of their dreams.
When the young ladies of the Fairchild family learn that their stepfather has absconded with their late mother's fortune, Ava, the eldest, hunts down the notoriously wealthy rakehell Jared Broderick, the Marquis of Middleton and heir to a dukedom.
Much to her shock and delight, the marquis sweeps her into a whirlwind romance and proposes marriage. But after their passionate wedding night, Ava discovers Jared has ulterior motives of his own. Not only does he expect her to deliver an heir while he continues to enjoy a rogue's life, but Ava also suspects she is a pawn in her husband's quest for revenge. Marriages of convenience work for some, but for Ava a loveless bond won't do. So she devises a bold plan to confront her husband's demons so that he might be free to choose to give her his heart for the right reason: because she is the only woman he will ever truly desire.

Captivating and delightful

My first reaction to this book was WOW. I loved how the story began followed up with the challenges presented after the marriage. The storyline was very creative and definitely kept my interest the entire book. Very refreshing indeed. Love the fact that Julia London does not waist the reader’s time writing about each character’s ridiculous mind babble and relationship and personal insecurities. It is so refreshing to read a story completely focused on developing characters so that every moment is filled with something that actually adds to the experience. I highly recommend it although this narrator, I feel, takes a bit away from the story because when she talks it’s as if she has something in her mouth.
