When two friends enter into a marriage of convenience, they solve their financial woes, but stir up feelings they prefer to ignore. Their path of discovery takes them to London and Paris and throws them into an intrigue designed to tear the flimsy fabric of their arrangement apart.
Caroline Torrington is large, and she wears glasses. Not the sort of woman to attract the attention of London's most notorious rake unless he is after her fortune.
Lucas, Lord Foxhaven, noted for his wild and reckless behavior, is once again in dispute with his father over his financial excesses. Only his childhood friend Caro can help him out of his predicament.
Little does Caroline know that her voluptuous curves are driving Lucas to distraction.
In the midst of deepening mutual attraction, Caroline gets embroiled in a scandal and is kidnapped. After a dangerous escape, Caroline tells Lucas the whole marriage thing was a huge mistake. Can Lucas convince her that he loves her for herself and not her fortune?
