Desperate and destitute, the devilish Lord Rival has drawn up a list of wealthy women who might be willing to wed-and Lady Olivia Fairfax is one of them. But when he finally meets the mysterious spinster, she is hardly the lonely naïf he expected.

Diane Farr was first published at the age of eight when the local newspaper printed one of her poems. She has spent most of her life with her nose in a book -- sometimes reading, sometimes writing. Eventually she produced eight historical romances and a novella, all published by Signet Books, a division of Penguin Putnam. Her latest adventure is a teen paranormal series: The Spellspinners.From Booklist:
Lady Olivia Fairfax has it all. She's rich, she answers to no one, and she has a rewarding life running the orphanage she founded. She certainly has no desire for marriage, having no intention of destroying her immensely pleasing life. Meanwhile, George Carstairs is at the end of his rope. His estate became impoverished a generation or two ago, and he's spent most of his life gambling to finance his very existence. Now in his thirties, living in a small room with no valet or servants, hiding his acute penury from the ton, he decides to bite the bullet and find a rich wife. His heart's desire is to bring his estate back to life, so he makes a list, checks it twice, and sets out to pursue the heiress at the top and work his way down. Though their first meeting is a case of mistaken identity, there's no mistaking the charm of Farr's characters and their amusing and highly satisfying tale. Maria Hatton
