SHE HAD NO INTENTION OF REMAINING IN ENGLAND--MUCH LESS MARRYING AN ENGLISHMAN!
An American miss with a mind of her own, Gillian Prescott was miserable in England, homesick, and heartsick at her father's admonition to find a proper English gentleman to marry. The earl of Wrexham was a model of stoic British composure, and handsome as well. He was also in dire financial straits and quite ripe for the plucking, she she was told.
The earl, however, could not be bought any more than Gillian would agree to her father's most inconvenient match. Soon, though, events conspired to convince her that the fastest way to return to her beloved Virginia was to marry the man and produce an heir. But of course, things rarely turn out so conveniently.
