Philip Treyane needed a wife. He was the last of his line so he decided that it was time that he married so that he could produce an heir. He also had an infant daughter that needed a mother and three sisters he had custody of. A family friend offered Philip the hand of his second eldest daughter. As long as she could run a household and be kind to the four girls in his life, why did he need to be in love? He had no use for it. At twenty-four and unmarried, Jane Wilson was considered to be firmly on the shelf. She has quite content to live in her parents' home surrounded by family instead of raising one of her own. At least that was what she told herself. She believed in love but never thought it would happen to her. When Jane's sister reveals that she is in love with someone who isn't her betrothed, Jane is surprised. Being someone who would do anything for her family, Jane finds herself agreeing to take her sister's place at the altar without anyone knowing. She knows it would cause a scandal but who is she to deny her sister happiness when she would never have her own?
