What if Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet shrewdly accepted Mr. Darcy's offensive marriage proposal, instead of rejecting him; in order to gain power over him and the situation, to ultimately succeed in her sister's happiness in love? Such a question inspired the creation of Miss Houston's story. Confidently saucy Fontana Houston is in the midst of making a true love match in marriage for her dearest friend, when the seemingly proud Mr. Buckingham suddenly throws a hitch into her worthy works. Miss Houston soon sees that Buckingham fancies her as his own potential wife, so she deceptively relents to his offer and temporarily becomes his false fiancée; that she might philanthropically conspire towards her beloved friend's betrothal of destiny. By the time her dear friend happily marries his, instead of breaking her fiancé's heart to complete her somewhat heartless but pragmatic scheme; Fontana's own heart is turned upside down in the bargain, assuring complete alteration to her future life.
