In an effort to preserve the family estate, Ian MacGregor, the Earl of Balfour, must marry for money. When a promising match emerges in the form of Genie Daniels, a rich English heiress, Ian begins devising a strategy to woo her. When he meets Genie's poor cousin Augusta, he discovers a new avenue to Genie's heart. But after spending time with Augusta and falling for her charms, Ian begins to question whether or not he's willing to forfeit his heart to save the family name…
There are three other romances weaving through the main one involving Augusta and Ian's families. All short but very satisfying.
Both Ian and Augusta are likeable characters. Ian is extremely devoted to his family and Augusta once a wealthy woman now penniless, making the most of her situation. And of course love blooms!
Maybe a bit over the top having four MacGregors marrying four Danieles and the villain was super evil.
A recommendable read.
