Can a Regency belle buy true love on the marriage mart?
Lady Lydia Eastlake has been the belle of Regency London society ever since her debut. The well-to-do heiress is in no hurry to wed since she cherishes both her independence and her influence for good…until the dark day she learns her fortune has vanished, forcing her to put herself back on the marriage market for one last golden season.
Lydia needs a wealthy husband but what she finds is Captain Ned Lockton, a dashing war hero from a noble family. At first Lydia believes Ned, with his coolheaded charm and dangerous smile, is the man who can make all of her dreams come true. But then she discovers he is on the hunt for a rich bride who will rescue his own family from ruin.
Too late, Lydia realizes she has lost not only her fortune, but her heart. As an unexpected danger closes in around them, she and Ned must decide if they are willing to surrender their tidy dreams for the future and pay the price of passion in each other’s arms…
