Full Synopsis
The Bellamy family has four months before they'll lose the roof over their heads. While Phoebe's older sisters venture out into the world to earn the necessary funds, Phoebe herself stays home to care for her younger siblings and parents. But then she meets Viscount Needham, a wealthy new peer, and everything changes.

When Phoebe learns that her father is determined to marry one of his daughters to Needham, she knows it's time to act. She can't imagine saddling any of her sisters with the brutally handsome upstart. So, she does the unthinkable and proposes to Viscount Needham herself . . .

Paul Needham attended the best schools, belongs to all the proper clubs, and can buy and sell half the House of Lords and still have money to spare. Yet the ton still treats him with disdain. Marrying one of their own is the fastest way to legitimize his place in society. But that doesn't mean that he has to like his bride. Their marriage will be nothing but a mutually beneficial business arrangement.

Except it doesn't feel like a transaction when Phoebe is in his arms . . .

They are complete opposites with nothing in common. Is love enough to bridge their two worlds?

Contains mature themes.
