The final wallflower, Daisy Bowman, has had three London Seasons, but hasn't managed to snare a titled husband. Her father announces that if she can't find a groom, then he will choose one for her; the arrogant Bostonian, Matthew Swift.

Daisy has despised Matthew for years and will do whatever it takes to find an acceptable suitor, anyone but Matthew. However, when he arrives in London, she's taken back by his charm and sensuality. The instantaneous desire that explodes between them is impossible to ignore and has Daisy wondering how quickly hate can turn to love.

Just as Daisy realizes Matthew is the perfect man for her, a scandalous secret is revealed that could shatter Daisy's dreams of love and happiness.
