Evan Middleton, Viscount Harcourt, is hiding his poverty from the rest of the world. With nothing but the clothes on his back and a horse to call his own, he needs a wealthy bride to save his family from his father’s debts.
Ariadne strikes a bargain with him that he can’t refuse…but will her proposition result in an unexpected temptation?
