Margaret Hollyoak has no intention of letting her parents pair her off with Mr. George Townsbridge. As one of England’s most notorious rakes, he’s bound to make a terrible husband. But in her attempt to dissuade George’s suit, Margaret gets to know him, and slowly begins to realize that she may not only have misjudged him, but that he might be the man of her dreams.
George is hugely amused by Margaret’s attempts to rid herself of his company. He’s also very determined to win her. Not because she’s his parents’ choice, but because she’s fun, spirited, and wonderfully creative. Now, if only he can improve her opinion of him, and change her mind about accepting an earl’s offer instead, he’s certain they will find happiness together.
