Newlywed Elizabeth Chavers is beside herself with shock. It seems her groom, Lord Charnwood, has not only been married before, but his former wife Magda has turned up on their wedding night! Stifling her own independent nature, Elizabeth had entered the nuptials determined to become the proper, biddable wife she thought Justin wanted - all the while believing that at least his character was beyond reproach. But now that she knows otherwise, she sees little reason to play the prim and proper miss longer...Lord Charnwood can scarcely believe his damnable luck. He'd never expected Magda would be forced to take refuge with him and his new bride. And he'd certainly never imagined that Elizabeth would reveal a most unexpected spirit by taking up with one of the ton's handsomest rogues. There's little help for it now...and even less time to lose. To salvage this marriage, Justin will have to show his adorably determined wife just how much he has grown to care for her - and turn an impossible situation into a perfect match.
