Young Lady Helena Bradbury’s world is turned upside-down when her father suddenly dies, leaving her alone and homeless at 18. After her cousin, the notoriously narcissistic Walter Bradbury inherits the estate, he turns his sights on her vast wealth and will do absolutely anything to secure it.
There’s just one problem, she’s now under the protection of her father’s closest friend, The Earl of Suffolk, thanks to the foresight to transfer guardianship before he passed.
Yet it may not be enough, for with his lawyers and a fierce and dirty determination to win at all costs, her cousin doubles down and fights to find her a husband and secure a way into her riches.
Her only chance lies in the hope for love from unexpected places. But will it be in time? And will it be enough?
