The Honorable Rachael Fairchild, daughter to Cargrave’s oldest friend, Viscount Harleigh, is threatened by her father with even more odious marriage choices if she does not wed the man the Ton has labeled “the Yankee earl.” But Jason is a toad stool, nothing more than a jumped up pirate.

Rachel devises a plan that will enable Jason is to escape England, thus freeing them both from a fate worse than death–marriage…to each other!
