Lord Robert Selborne intended to kiss the chimney sweep's daughter for luck at his cousin's wedding... not marry her. But of all the ladies assembled, she was the only one who captured his interest.

Until Rob's lips met hers in a soul-stirring kiss and he impulsively made her his wife. And his penniless bride now hoped her love would provide Rob with a fortune far greater than the one he sought.
