REGENCY ROMANCE Country-bred, spirited Kitty Charing is on the brink of inheriting a fortune from her eccentric guardian--provided she marries one of his grand-nephews. Kitty has spent her secluded life pining for the wild and unpredictable Jack Westruther, but Jack's not ready to settle down. Desperate to turn the tide of her fate, Kitty hatches a counterfeit betrothal to her cousin, the mild-mannered Viscount Freddy Standen. Considered the "fool of his family," no one expects much from Freddy. But when Kitty's generous heart leads to all sorts of troubles, Freddy and Jack finally face off, and Freddy surprises everyone, not least of all, himself.
