One bachelor down . . . three more to go. Four most desirable gentlemen have wagered one shilling apiece and a bottle of cognac that will go to the last unmarried man standing . . .

Nigel Cavendish knows he'll marry one day, but hopefully that day is many years--and many women--in the future Until then, the handsome, unrepentant rake intends to enjoy life's pleasures to the fullest

From the moment Lady Felicity Melville spies the adventurous scoundrel climbing from a neighbor's window--with his comely conquest's husband in hot pursuit--she knows Nigel is the answer to her prayers . . . with a little reformation, of course Felicity craves excitement and who in all of London is more exciting than the infamous Mr. Cavendish? So what's a girl to do but hatch a scheme to win what she so fervently desires. But her plan works too well when a game of chance and an errant pistol shot abruptly make them husband and wife--but in a way neither wanted.

Now Felicity has to prove to her wayward husband that she's the only woman he could ever want . . . or need.
