According to her father's will, heiress Meredith Darlington must find a bridegroom before her next birthday — just two weeks away — or marry the man her eccentric godmama chooses.
Panicked, Meredith proposes to Lane Markham Graystone, the third Earl of Graystone, a man she barely knows but who once pierced her heart when she was a young girl on holiday.
Unbeknownst to Meredith, Laney isn't Laney, but his ne'er-do-well twin, Larkin. Estranged from his family at a young age and forever involved in perilous escapades, Larkin is being stalked by a treacherous enemy.
As danger and intrigue draw the pair together, Meredith discovers that she's falling for her bridegroom impostor — and ultimately fears she's nothing more than a pawn in another of his deadly games.
