Isabel Treverren is prepared to do the unspeakable-auction off her virginity to the highest bidder in order to house her ailing family.

She is shamed and horrified when Richard, Earl Ballender, a man who knows and admires her, buys her for the month. She can't afford to fall in love, not when so many depend on her, so she maintains a professional facade.

Richard wants more than her body, he wants her heart and soul. But he can’t seduce her until she gives him a sign of her love as he’s been duped by women before. So he goes to unusual lengths to show her but will she believe his love is genuine?
