Playing the Part
'Tis all a dreadful mistake. Jezebel Clinton is no actress; she is a proper young lady, playing a role in order to save her brother from financial ruin. Now she has just been bought by the Marquis of Haversham to play the part of his fiancée! Detesting the idea of being leg-shackled, the Marquis wishes to foil his matchmaking grandmother's plans. He will arrange to become 'engaged' to a woman she will never accept - by hiring the lovely, entirely unsuitable Jezebel.
Jezebel is furious, frantic, and alas, too poor to repay Haversham. Worse, each time her handsome 'fiancé' is near she becomes all a-tremble. It must be love, and there is only one cure. Although Jezebel cannot act worth a whit, she must triumph upon the bigger stage of life, convincing the ton - and Haversham's grandmother - that all's well can end well, as a smitten Marquis joins her at the altar for a lifetime of happiness that is the real thing!
