Arabella Sheraton about this book: Julian Edward George St. John Trevallon, the twelfth Earl of Pennington has an estate in need of funds but does not want to marry. He is determined to find a solution to restore Penrose and his estates that his idiot older brother, Bevin, paupered by gambling before he died. His great-uncle, Sir Oswald Barton, left a very peculiar will. Julian must marry by midnight of his thirtieth birthday to inherit a fortune or remain poor. If he marries at the time specified, he will inherit his fortune six months after the marriage. It is now six days until his birthday. He is traveling when he almost runs over a dark-clad figure with red hair. He stops to find a woman on the road and takes her to Penrose to see to her injuries. Roxanne Chesney is fleeing from an abusive husband. Julian offers her a contract: marriage for six months to help him fulfil the conditions of his great-uncle's will, enabling him to secure his inheritance. In return he will pay her a small fortune. Can Roxanne resist this offer? What about the revolting Edgar Doyle who forced her into a loveless marriage that has not been consummated? Roxanne has escaped Edgar's clutches, but she wonders how long she will manage to evade him. The earl's contract has no strings attached. The offer is irresistible except for the fact that Roxanne is already married!
