“Rumour has it that a certain notorious Princess has not a feather to fly and is looking for a gentleman to ease her financial worries. Perhaps the Earl of S. is the man she seeks…”

The Gentlemen’s Mercury, 1816

Princess Isabella di Cassilis urgently needs a husband – and she is seeking him in the Fleet Prison! Anxious to find a man who owes so much money that she can persuade him to take on her own debts as well, Princess Isabella goes to The Fleet to search for a prisoner she can bribe into matrimony. There she finds Marcus, Earl of Stockhaven, the man she jilted twelve years before.

When Marcus offers to help her she is too desperate to question his motives. But does Marcus have her best interests at heart – or does he want revenge, and the wedding night they never had?
