(from our review) What do you do when your parents insist that the marriage arranged while you were still in your cradle finally become a reality, even though you look upon your intended as a brother, and a brother who is in love with someone else? Lady Jane Welsham comes up with a scheme to get out of this sticky problem. Her fiancé, Nigel Boscastle, will jilt her at the altar while he dashes off to marry his (rapidly increasing) love, who just happens to be the family governess. It should all come off beautifully. Nigel will disappear and the ensuing scandal will assure that the bluestocking Jane is left alone and perhaps keep her parents from meddling too much in her sisters' marital prospects. But she doesn't count on Grayson Boscastle, the Marquess of Sedgecroft. Grayson is Nigel's cousin and, since his father's death a year ago, head of the large, boisterous, hell-raising Boscastle family. Grayson has the reputation of being the worst of the lot, but now that he is the Marquess he has found that his old life doesn't have the appeal it once did and that being the one who has to deal with his family's excesses is no picnic. As head of the family he formulates his own plan to "make this right" for Jane.
