Leander, Lord Charrington has a problem. Raised to be a charming diplomat, women fall in love with him.
He, however, seeks a marriage of convenience with a sensible woman with whom he can live on honest terms.
The impoverished widow, Judith Rossiter, Angel Bride of poet Sebastian Rossiter, seems ideal. Still dressing in black, she remains devoted to her dead husband, and she has children to provide for.
Judith Rossiter thanks heaven for the earl's offered escape from disaster. Though her story is not what the earl believes, the terms of his agreement—to not fall in love with him—seem simple enough. Or so she believes on her wedding day . . . .
