An arranged marriage for London's most desired lady? Is it possible? The breathtaking Lady Annabelle has actually agreed to marry, sight unseen, a gentleman of her father's choosing -- the self-proclaimed "exceptionally average" Miles Croft. The ton is aghast! After scandalously toying with so many hearts, why is the exquisite Annabelle chaining herself to the new Viscount Pelham, a complete - albeit most attractive - stranger? Could it be that her own heart has been irreparably shattered, and she wants nothing more to do with romance?
Yet there is nothing "average" about their weding night! There is magic in Mile's touch, and the smoldering ecstasy it ignites threatens to consume them both. Dare Anabelle dream this is the one passionate and enduring love she ached for in secret, but never dreamed she'd be worthy of? Might this tender, mysterious lover truly be the scarlet lady's redemption - and could she be Miles's as well?
