Lady Abigail Lacey is a disgrace all because she fell in love with the wrong man, and ended up jilted, and the laughingstock of London. The only solution is to quickly marry. The man to step up to the plate is a childhood friend and her very first crush. Rector Joseph Fox was in the right place at the right time, when he stopped by his childhood friends house the Duke of Manchester to solicit contributions help to start a free school. He went to London looking for money and left with a new wife, whose dowry is enough to cover everything he needs for the school. Joseph has always admired, respected and even loved Abigail from afar and never expected he would get the change to marry her. Abigail agreed to the marriage because she was tired of London and wanted something worthwhile to do with her life and the wife of a rector was the perfect thing.
Abigail originally wanted just a marriage of convenience after the conception of the heir but after experiencing the pleasures of the marriage bed and with the understanding and companionship of Joseph she soon realizes what she felt before was nothing compared to her feelings now. The only dark cloud on their happy ending is a series of accidents that keep happening to Abigail. Joseph knows it something more than just bad luck and confronts her brother about it and hires someone to look in on it. Someone is not happy with the marriage between Joseph and Abigail. Hopefully Joseph can find out who is behind it all before anything really dangerous happens to Abigail.
