It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single woman approaching thirty must be in want of a husband...Not Elizabeth Scott. Instead of planning a walk down the aisle, she's leaving New York behind for an adventure in London with the only companion she needs - her dog, Bliss. A new job caring for a pack of show dogs should be just the thing to take her mind off the scandal that ruined her teaching career -and her reputation. She's certainly not interested in dealing with men like the condescending Donovan Darcy, no matter how gorgeous he is! But a nearly thirty-something New Yorker seduced by country mansions and glittering London parties can only resist so much! So when a proposal does come along, will she say yes...?
