Most girls would dream of marriage to the dashing Earl of Stanton, darling of the ton. For plain Lady Felicity Weston, used to being ignored, it's a terrifying prospect! Richard has always thought love is for fools. Although after an explosive wedding night he's intrigued by his shy new bride.
Day by day the tentative trust between these newlyweds grows. But the stakes in this marriage of convenience are raised when Felicity falls pregnant... Will giving the Earl an heir finally help this wallflower blossom into a confident Countess?
