Mason St. Clair, the new Earl of Ashlin, has inherited a title for which there is no fortune, thanks to his spendthrift and scandalous predecessors. Steeped in debt, with three ungainly nieces to marry off, Mason knows he will have to wed a rich heiress to save his family from ruin. Mason certainly doesn't expect his salvation to arrive in the breathtaking form of Madame Riley Fontaine, a woman of questionable reputation and irresistible allure, who offers him an unthinkable solution to all his problems. What Mason needs is a respectable and wealthy bride, and seductive Riley is anything but. Yet one kiss from this impetuous lady and suddenly Mason's heart hungers for no marriage of convenience, but one of love.
