Is there such a thing as a match made in heaven? Find out in Heather Cullman’s moving story of a man forced to choose between marriage -- and madness . . .
Michael Vane, Earl of Sherrington, was once one of the most sought-after bachelors in London. But when a bout of brain fever left him prone to frightening seizures, he was scorned by the fashionable ton -- and he retreated to a secluded abbey on the English moors to mourn the man he used to be.
Back in his old social circle, rumor has it that Michael has gone quite mad. Desperate for an heir to his title, his grandmother gives him an ultimatum: he must marry -- or she will have him committed to an asylum. His choice is clear -- but who will have him? Luckily, Grandmother has a lovely lady in mind . . .
Thrice-engaged but never wed, Emily Merriman has her own reasons for agreeing to an arranged union with this melancholy stranger. For she, too, has resigned herself to a lifetime of thwarted desires -- until she discovers just how powerful love can be.
