But, Eugenia, only child of this marriage is not only an orphan - she is also her grandfather's sole heir and extremely wealthy.

Keen to keep the Turville money in the family, Lady Turville deigns to overlook her niece's rustic manners in order to force a match between Eugenia and one of her sons.

But Eugenia is not the simple country girl she was expecting...

Will Lady Turville's plans come to pass? Could Eugenia fall for one of her cousin's charms?

Or will she make an advantageous marriage elsewhere... ?
