Abstract:

"When an ancient tax law is invoked requiring all unmarried ladies to either wed or surrender half their wealth, the quiet village of Fortune's Folly is overrun by a swarm of fortune-hunting bachelors. Marry again? Never! Not after what Laura, the dowager duchess, was forced to endure the first time. Even if her onetime paramour, Dexter Anstrutherm is oh-so-tempting, she knows her secrets would destroy any chance of a future together. Young, handsome and scandalously tempting, Dexter suspects Laura has a hidden motive for resisting his charms ... and he intends to discover it, by any means necessary."--Page 4 of cover.
