Lady Ariana Boxstall's brother, Norris, is a strapping young man, but he's happily unmarried and childless. Pestered by his sister, Norris agrees to take a wife on one condition: that Ariana take a husband first. Although she realizes she risks spending a lifetime in a loveless marriage, for the sake of her own family's legacy, Ariana accepts his challenge.
When the Earl of Kynaston met Ariana eight years ago, he broke her heart. Since then, his own heart has been broken, and he's sworn off love...until he sees Ariana all grown-up, and then his resolve is threatened. Could Ariana's bargain with Norris actually lead her to happiness? With real love on the line, she must win over the one man who refuses to be had.

Did someone else actually write this book?
I love Jo Beverley's books and have eagerly awaited each new release over the years. I was saddened at her death last year and looked forward to reading this book, particularly as its her last. what a pity then that it is to put it finely just awful. The first chapter was good and the heroine looked as if she was going to become an interesting character. The H also looked interesting but what a disappointment. Both characters were shallow and wooden without the least spark. This whole book is so lacking in the wit and charm that is characteristic of Jo Beverley that I wonder if having been started by Jo, it was finished by someone else. This is such a disappointment but at least I have her other books to remember her by.
