Sixteen and rich, Victoria gets sent to England in search of a husband. Along the way she meets Lord Malfrey and the two become engaged before she even sets foot on English soil. Unfortunately, the horrendous, albeit handsome, Captain Carstairs keeps interfering in Victoria’s matters. As annoying as she finds him, Victoria soon finds all is not as it seems…
“There were any of the other numerous gentleman with whom she’d become acquainted since arriving in London.
But Victoria had thought of one name and one name only when she’d determined that a gentleman must be sent for, and that name had been Jacob Carstairs.
And that was, purely and solely, because he was the only person Victoria knew who could be counted upon to keep his mouth shut about Lord Malfrey…”
During her stay, Victoria goes about helping others but soon finds that she must focus on herself if she is to make the right decision in who she is to wed.
