Five years ago, six exceptional ladies graduated from Twittingham Academy and successfully nabbed themselves the most sought-after matrimonial prizes in London. Actually, they didn't. Not one of them. But the Countess of Fangfoss, formerly known as Miss Julia Twittingham, has a plan to see each of her past charges happily wed after all. Welcome to Second Chance Manor.
Lady Angeline O'Shea was certain she would find a husband right out of finishing school, but instead, she was called back to Ireland to nurse her sick father through his final years. Now, slightly older, slightly wiser, but still as sweet and innocent as she was in school, she is determined to do her duty to her family by finding the perfect and most suitable husband...
...who is not Lord Rafe McAllister, Marquess of Rothbury.
Fresh off of a broken engagement in which his reputation was raked through the mud, Rafe wants nothing more than to hide away in Yorkshire for the summer, licking his wounds. He supposes he'll have to marry eventually, but the last woman on earth that he could see as his marchioness is cheerful, angelic, innocent Angeline.
Angeline has other ideas, though. What starts as her bid to get the curmudgeonly Rafe to smile turns into a passion that neither she nor Rafe can deny...
...until Rafe's former fiancée shows up at the house party.
