To recoup her shattered reputation, Meredith must find a bride for the most unmarriageable person in the Ton, Philip. As she tries to find the right woman, he works on removing the curse. Soon Meredith and Philip fall in love, but he believes in the curse so nothing can come of their feelings and besides which someone wants him dead.

The story line engages the audience as the lead couple falls in love, but dare not defy the curse. The intrigue of someone trying to kill Philip comes across as genuine vengeance and adds suspense to the tale, but also takes readers away from the prime delightful theme of will she take this man or not?
