Hugh Dunne, the Earl of Briarly, needs a wife, so his sister hands him a list of delectable damsels and promises to invite them - and a few other gentlemen - to her country house for what is sure to be the event of the season. Hugh will have time to woo whichever lady he most desires ... Unless someone else snatches her first. The invitation list includes: The horse-mad but irresistibly handsome Early of Briarly. The always outspoken Miss Katherine Peyton. The dashing war hero Captain Neill Oakes. The impossibly beautiful (and painfully shy) Miss Gweendolyn Passmore. The terribly eligible new Earl of Charters. The widowed Lady Georgina Sorrell (who has no plans to marry, ever). And your hostess, Lady Carolyn Finchley, an irrepressible matchmaker who plans to find the lady most likely ... to capture her brother's untamed heart.
