She’s decided that she’ll never marry.
But she can’t stop thinking about him.
And she’s already engaged to someone else…

He needs a wife: someone who’s gentle and kind…
After making his fortune in India, Lord Devernwood returns to England to marry.
Ordered to accompany Devernwood and his bride to India when he returns, Henry decides that she’ll find him a suitable lady. Someone who’s all propriety, of course.
Henry creates a little list of suitable females…
Henry becomes Devernwood’s friend, and creates a list of conventional women. All he has to do is choose one, and propose to her.
What could possibly go wrong?
