What girl hasn't dreamed of walking down the aisle to wed that handsome someone? Ashton Robinson has dreamed of the Englishman her brother had told of. The rogue sent from Englad because of his reputation as a sly seducer and womanizer. Only, for Ashton, her wedding day may never come. Ashton has always been frail, and has recently been diagnosed with consumption and given sixth months to live.
After finding Ashton in her mother's wedding dress, crying because she would never be a bride, David decides to test his friendship with Kit Montgomery and ask him, the focus of his little sister's heart, to marry her.
It took a while for Kit to agree, but he decided it was for the best. Kit only loved one woman. Her name had been Clarise, his brother's wife, and had died while he was in England. Deciding that this marriage to Ashton would deny him nothing, but give Ashton a taste of happiness, he goes along with the plan.
Ashton wants more than being a bride, though. She wants to be a wife. Loved. Cherished. Desired. Can she find a way to wiggle into Kit's heart before her time is gone?
