Elektra Worthington is determined to marry into money to save her family and their home. At the top of her list is Lord Aaron Arbogast. He has just returned to England after being gone for 10 years (he won't know all her family's angst) and he is loaded. How convenient that he just happens to stop at an inn where Elektra is waiting for her cousin. What else is there to do but kidnap him to do her bidding.
Aaron Arbogast can't believe that he has been kidnapped! Since he is already in his valet's clothes, with his valet conveniently playing him at the inn, what else is there to do but notify Elektra that she has kidnapped the wrong man? But being the man that he is, he can not allow Elektra and her cousin to travel back to London on their own. Aaron must continue to play the part of his valet for a little bit longer.
What is a girl to do when she finds herself falling for an improper man? Does she follow her heart or marry to save the family fortunes?
As wacky as they are, I've really fallen in love with the Worthington family. Elektra is probably the least wacky of the bunch (other than her kidnapping a future Earl) and feels responsible for the family. She needs to marry well to be able to restore the family home. Aaron, being the outsider of the bunch, sees how much she is sacrificing her life to make her family's life better.
Aaron left England because he had disgraced his family (he took the blame for someone else) and is back to prove that he is a changed man. Even knowing that he needs to see his grandfather to secure his inheritance, Aaron still decides to escort the girls back to London.
Aaron and Elektra are perfect for each other. They will sacrifice their lives for those that they love.
I can't wait to read more stories about the Worthingtons!
