Summary:
"A marriage of convenience between a Mexican heiress and a shrewd London politician makes for a scandalous Victorian bargain--and a love that will eclipse the burdens of ambition and duty. Ana María Luna Valdés has strived to be the perfect daughter, the perfect niece, and the perfect representative of the powerful Luna familia. So, when Ana María is secretly sent to London with her sisters to seek refuge during the French occupation of Mexico, she experiences her first taste of freedom far from the judgmental eyes of her domineering father. If only she could ignore the piercing looks she receives across ballroom floors from the austere Mr. Fox. Gideon Fox elevated himself from the London gutters with a burning desire for more: more opportunities, more choices. Now as a member of Parliament, Gideon's on the cusp of securing the votes he needs to put forth a vote on the abolishment of the Atlantic slave trade--a cause that is close to his heart as the grandson of a formerly enslaved woman. A proper English bride would certainly aide his task but it's the sweetly vexing Ana María who inflames him. But when Ana María finds herself in the crosshairs of a nefarious nobleman with his own political agenda, Gideon sacrifices his goal to offer his hand as protection...but will this Mexican heiress take his heart as well?" -- Provided by publisher.
