Wild and willful Victoria Colton had only one desire: to go to Africa and travel the world in search of adventure. Disrupting her plans comes an ultimatum from her guardians, weary of Victoria's hoydenish ways. By the end of the London Season, Victoria must find a husband or her inheritance will be withheld. Finding himself in the same boat as Victoria, Gabriel Sinclair must find a wife or the Hawthorne title is passed to incapable relatives. Having spent half their lives detesting each other, they are now suddenly united with one common goal in mind: to remain unwed, even to each other.
