    In order to inherit, Alec must remain scandal free for at least one year, which may become difficult with Julia's passion for charity work for wayward women. When Nick meets Julia, after she has blossomed from a dowdy spinster into a delectable woman, he finds himself wanting her, but wanting the inheritance even more. Nick discovers Julia's charity work and uses it to create scandal, which opens a rift between Alec and Julia. Alec, who believes Julia is in love with someone else, openly shows his anger and fights her attempts to seduce him into her bed. Alec and Julia must fight Nick's machinations and Therese's anger in order to settle into a life of love and marriage.
