Cassandra is being jilted by her fiance and realizes while he is throwing her aside Gordon is eavesdropping, unintentionally of course. Cassandra wasn't in love, but she has a ward, Alicia, who is eight and her fiance agreed to be this young girls ward. Some of the ton gossips that Alicia is actually Cassandra's illegitimate child, but she isn't. Here is one of the first unbelievable situations, no single woman would have a ward because of the scandal it would cause. Not sure if a woman could even be responsible for a child not legally her own during that time period.
Cassandra wants to get married and take Alicia from her brother's home because her brother's wife is horrible to her and the child. She asks Gordon if he will marry her and he refuses. Gordon is a rake and isn't ready to settle down, especially to a woman who does the asking.
Gordon's mother has had a medical event (sounds like a stroke) that has caused her to have problems speaking. His mother really likes Cassandra and is happy when she visits. Cassandra cooks up an idea that, again, Gordon should marry her, she will take care of his mother and he will become Alicia's ward. After some convincing, Gordon agrees, it is supposed to be a marriage of convenience.
Now we come to the part of the book that a couple of simple conversations would have cleared everything up. They don't know if they will sleep together or not, they have no idea what the other person actually wants from this marriage and god forbid they actually ask the other person. This did become tedious, too many conversations and internal thoughts that led to nothing.
Cassandra also designs lingerie and is a gifted nursemaid to Gordon's mother and has her speaking in complete sentences and going to balls in only a month or so, two more ideas that are highly unlikely. There were some passionate love scenes between the characters and there is plenty of chemistry. Even though Gordon is supposed to be an unrepentant rake, he is basically a good guy and he cares about Cassandra, dogs and children. I will probably read another book by this author.
