Destiny Blaine is about to meet the man of her dreams. The handsome and very eligible Mr. William Bryce of Cumberland has just rejoined society after his return from service in the Royal Navy. Word has it that he is finally ready to fulfill his obligation to find a wife and future mistress for Cumberland Manor.
There are plenty of eligible young ladies to vie for his attention, after all who wouldn't want to be the future Lady of Cumberland?
Destiny is different though, she cares not for titles and the trappings of wealth, but despite this, she finds her fondness for Mr. Bryce growing into something much deeper.
That's where her troubles begin, William's growing affection for her has not gone unnoticed, and what neither of them realize is that some young women will do whatever they can to get what... and who they want.
