Her sister is already in love with someone else, and Horatia is willing to sacrifice herself for her family's happiness. Everyone knows she's no beauty, but she'll do her best to keep out of the Earl's way and make him a good wife. And then the Earl's archenemy, Sir Robert, sets out to ruin her reputation... The Earl of Rule has found just the wife he wants Unbeknownst to Horatia, the Earl is enchanted by her. There's simply no way he's going to let her get into trouble.
