Prudence Ashcroft has three months to find a husband or she loses her inheritance. Still, if she marries the wrong man, she risks losing the family business. Her new stable master is strong, handsome and malleable. Perfect husband material, at least for what Prudence has in mind. Or is he? Prudence desperately fights for control of her fortune and her heart, but perhaps her destiny is already out of her hands. Captain Evan Foster has everything a man could want—success, a vast fortune and the fastest ship in the Colonies. The only thing he doesn’t have is a wife, but then he doesn’t need or want one. When a red-haired, hazel-eyed heiress makes him an offer, he’s dumbfounded…but intrigued. Too bad Prudence thinks he’s just the stable master.
