Eleanor de Tressail lost her father and grandfather in quick succession, and now she's racking her brain trying to figure out how to pay the inheritance tax on the estate and all the property that was bequeathed to her. She promised her grandfather that she wouldn't lose the home that the family has lived in for generations, but her stepsister, Grania, believes they should sell the house and split the money equally. At that moment Joss, the trustee of their finances, appears and proposes marriage to Eleanor. In exchange for the de Tressail family title, he'll take care of all her financial problems. But she can't marry someone who doesn't love her...even if she loves him!
