Book description
Sir Peter wants his sister Carola Greton to pretend to be the Marquis of Broxburne's wife, to foil an American multi-millionaire's wish to marry off his daughter to an English lord. Carola was only a sheltered young country gentlewoman, and the Marquis was the master of magnificent Brox Hall and the darling of highest Society. It was a delicate deception, intended to shield the Marquis from the matrimonial ambitions of a wealthy American. Carola could never have foreseen the dangers: an amorous and cynical Duke, a pair of ruthless kidnappers -- and most perilous of all, her love for the imperious Marquis, and a fervent hope that sweet pretence might become joyously real! But it is not easy for Carola and Mary-Lee to find the love they both seek.

Demure young beauty Carola Greton's brother, Sir Peter, comes home from London with a very strange proposition for his sister. He asks her to pretend for a few days to be the wife of his friend, the Marquis of Broxburne! The reason for the charade is that the Marquis is in line for the post of Chairman of a new automobile Company founded by an American acquaintance, the multimillionaire Mr. Alton Westwood. Although eager to secure the position of Chairman, the Marquis is desperate to avoid Mr. Westwood's attempts to marry him off to his daughter Mary-Lou - so he has told the American that he is already married. And that is where Carola comes in - playacting the part of the Marchioness of Broxburne for the duration of the Westwoods' stay at Brox Hall. Thus begins a tangled web that leads to Carola pretending to be her brother's cousin as well. It is a web that ties her in knots of anguish when she falls head over heels in love, but it seems that her own lies will ensure that this Divine love can never be fulfilled -… (more)
