She's inherited a castle, scraped together some pride, and made plans to break her engagement. Not if Rafe Brandon can help it.

When all else fails, he puts her in a stunning gown and vows not to be nearby when the gown comes off. And no matter what--he doesn't fall in disastrous, hopeless love with the one woman he can never call his own" -- From publisher's web site.
