Phoebe Sparks, writer of Improving Tales for children, has vowed never
to marry again unless she's sure it won't turn into a bickering,
resentful mess like her first marriage. The Honorable Nick Dymond has
vowed never to get involved in his family's politicking. But Nick's
mother couldn't care less about their vows. Nick has moped long
enough about his curtailed army career and new limp, and any local
resident who marries Phoebe will be legally entitled to a vote in her
small town's upcoming Parliamentary election. So Nick's mother packs
him off to the country with strict instructions to marry Phoebe off to
the first local supporter of their political party he can find. When
disaster strikes Phoebe's teenage sister, Phoebe is forced to consider
selling her vote--and her hand--but as election intrigue grows darker,
she has to admit that what she really wants is Nick.
