Miss Erin Lambart has spent her life in Ireland, and now, her mother wants her to meet and marry a nice English gentleman, all before the May Day celebration. Erin soon finds the insipid conversations and fashionably late nights tiring and wishes she could find a gentleman who enjoys talking to her and is not put off by her bluestocking ways.
Lord Jackson Bell, Marquis Guildford, does not have time for the frivolities of London. His research for the Horticultural Society of London keeps him quite busy, but his mother has other ideas in mind. She’s decided he needs a wife, and she is determined that this will be the season he finds one.
Erin and Jack become fast friends, allies against boring conversation, and soon make a pact to help each other find their perfect match. Only, what if their perfect match is each other? Will they realize in time that friendship has bloomed into love, or will they become star-crossed lovers married to the wrong people?
