On September 1, 2011, you are cordially invited to step back in time to 1814 where friends and family alike will be gathered at Watson Estate to bear witness to the marriage of Mister Alexander Banks and Lady Olivia Sinclair.
Wait. Could that be right? Lady Olivia?
Yes, that’s right. Lady Olivia.
Unbeknownst to Alex, more than twenty years ago his father signed a betrothal agreement with his closest friend, Lord Sinclair, that would bind Alex and Lady Olivia together until death do they part.
But wait, there’s more.
On the last page, there’s an addendum added some eight years later that offers Alex an escape, albeit a narrow one. If he marries someone–anyone–else before the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, there will be no repercussions. No breach of contract suits. No duels with an outraged male relative. And no science-hating harpy to grow old with.
But wait, there’s still more.
Alex’s birthday is only four short weeks away.
So what is an overly scientific, socially awkward man who’s gained himself the nickname of Arid Alex to do? Find a suitable woman and plan his courtship of her like a science experiment, of course!
Will he be successful in his latest–and most important–scientific endeavor? You can find out for yourself on September 1st!
(SPOILER: If you’re cringing, rolling your eyes, gritting your teeth, sneering or doing any other unfavorable action, stop. Lady Olivia is NOT the heroine of this book.)
