One bachelor down three more to go. Four most desirable gentlemen have wagered one shilling apiece and a bottle of cognac that will go to the last unmarried man standing. Nigel Cavendish knows he'll marry one day, but hopefully that day is many years - and many women - in the future! Until then, the handsome, unrepentant rake intends to enjoy life's pleasures to the fullest! From the moment Lady Felicity Melville spies the adventurous scoundrel climbing from a neighbor's window - with his comely conquest's husband in hot pursuit - she knows Nigel is the answer to her prayers with a little reformation, of course! Felicity craves excitement and who in all of London is more exciting than the infamous Mr. Cavendish? So what's a girl to do but hatch a scheme to win what she so fervently desires. But her plan works too well when a game of chance and an errant pistol shot abruptly make them husband and wife - but in a way neither wanted. Now Felicity has to prove to her wayward husband that she's the only woman he could ever want or need.
