From New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels: Book Two in Love in the Regency Series.
Abigail Backworth Maldon is no fan of marriage, having buried her late husband after his embarrassing demise (he toppled headfirst out of a bedroom window in an attempt to avoid an angry husband). But that doesn't mean she doesn't see its advantages -- just not for her.
The part she likes best is the idea of marrying off her niece to a suitable husband. To Abigail, "suitable" means the man comes with a pleasant disposition, a title if possible, and most definitely with a fortune he'd naturally share with his bride's family. Because, as chance would have it, the family is dead broke.
Enter Kipp Rutland, he of the recently broken heart (see WAITING FOR YOU), beholden to marry before his thirtieth birthday (he promised his mother, as mothers do worry... and nag). One look at Abby's niece tells him he has discovered the perfect wife -- quiet, conventional, probably not too bright. Marry her, bed her, and nine months later hand his ecstatic mother the grandchild she desires. After all, the last thing he's looking for is love.
Nothing can be simpler than Abby's plan and Kipp's plan -- except that nothing is ever that simple. Especially when the matchmaker and the matrimonial target she has sicced her niece on begin to realize opposite motives just might attract.
