But when Dilly arrives in London for the Season, she learns her father, Viscount Wescott, is in dun territory. Owing several thousand pounds to a miscreant, Vaughn Slater, Wescott agrees under duress to marry Dilly off to Slater to settle the debts as a dowry. Learning of the plan, Dilly decides to entice Nicholas into marriage to avoid the parsonâ€™s mousetrap with Slater.
While Dilly works her plot, Nicholas faces problems of his own. He receives a letter from his former father-in-law, Don Marco De Rosa, who tells Nicholas that under his marriage contract with Alejandra De Rosa, he must now marry Alejandraâ€™s cousin. Nicholas vows to marry another before being forced into marriage with a second De Rosa, and, at the moment Dilly appears to be a most tempting alternative.
And so begins the knotty entanglement of temptations, trials, and triumph, a knot that can only be unraveled by the titled, monied and supremely eligible Marquis and his most Darling Dilly.
