There has been an entail in place on the 30,000 acre Winterbourne estate for centuries. It specifies that the ownership of the estate and its assets should be passed on to the next heir on the day of their 40th birthday. However, that person must be married, else the inheritance is forfeit.
Thirty-nine years old and single, the sole heir Sir William Mortimer is understandably feeling the pressure. He consults local solicitor Elizabeth Silverton for legal advice, but quickly realizes that she might be able to assist him in a much more practical way...for the right price.
The answer to all of his problems, William proposes an arranged marriage, where sex was certainly never part of the plan.
Set in the heart of rural England, this story is a humorous, feel-good, erotic romance, complete with a happily-ever-after.
