But where can he find the perfect woman? She has to be attractive, kind, a good conversationalist…and most important, she has to accept him as he is: devilishly handsome, charming and, as far as anyone knows, poor as a church mouse! If London society discovers his hidden wealth, he’ll never find the right wife. Jack’s heart races when he first lays eyes on Sophie Winterton. She is everything he desires ― and more ― but he is caught in his own trap. Believing that Jack needs to marry into wealth, Sophie rejects all his advances, certain he would never marry a poor girl like her. As they play out a game of cat and mouse, can Jack convince her that she is the woman he wants ― and that he is the husband she deserves? “Laurens’s writing shines.” ―Publishers Weekly
