Arthur Banfield, a wealthy man, married for love and he wants the same opportunity for his daughter, but Jane, although an heiress, is not a beauty and she knows that men who pursue her are only interested in her wealth.
Plain Jane refuses to marry if she cannot marry for love.
The Prince Regent, however, who is related to her through her late mother, has other ideas. He delivers an ultimatum to Arthur: find a husband for Jane within sixty days, or the Prince himself will choose her husband.
One of the prince’s debt-ridden, debauched friends? For his darling, Jane? Arthur is doubly determined to find a suitable husband for his beloved daughter.
The solution is unconventional, but even more shocking when events take an unexpected turn.
An unattractive heiress, a dying Viscount, a desperate mother, and a father who fears for his daughter’s virtue – all play out passionately against the backdrop of societies expectations. A clean regency story of true love risen from the grave.
