Marriage at such a young age should have been exciting for a girl like Eira, who is obsessed with Pride and Prejudice and its author, Jane Austen. But, what happens when, instead of the Mr. Darcy she dreamed of, she gets stuck with an average, quiet, and completely tasteless boxer? 

Eira Ismail is only twenty when she is forced to make one of the biggest decisions of her life. She had imagined her Winter Break home from college would be an uneventful one. In fact, she intended to spend as much of it as she could with her family. Instead, she and her close sister, Zara, somehow become involved with the two sons of their parents' dearest friends.

One of them is much like Zara--boisterous, loud, and funny. The other, unlike anyone Eira has ever met. He's nothing like his younger brother or Zara, and definitely nothing like her. While she is clumsy, childish, timid, insecure, and a complete book fanatic, he is mysterious, reserved, and stunningly handsome.

Eira admits she may be attracted to him at first, just a little, but nearly not enough to marry him as her and his parents both suddenly reveal she must. Despite her protests, she is forced into the arrangement and becomes a wife, all in the span of what she had supposed would be a laid-back Winter Break.

Her concept of marriage is turned inside out and rearranged by this distant guy she must now call her husband, who while he remains civil to her, refuses to admit that he loves or has any feelings for her beyond friendliness. Their journey together as a hastily married couple continues to grow even more tense and complicated when a life-threatening event jeopardizes Eira's health and forces her so-called husband to finally evaluate what he feels for her.
