Summary, etc.:
"Introducing the Bow Street Bachelors--men who work undercover for London's first official police force--and the women they serve to protect ... and wed?"--Back cover.
"Shipping heiress Georgiana Caversteed is done with men who covet her purse more than her person. Even worse than the ton's lecherous fortune hunters, however, is the cruel cousin determined to force Georgie into marriage. If only she could find a way to be . . . widowed? Georgie hatches a madcap scheme to wed a condemned criminal before he's set to be executed. All she has to do is find an eligible bachelor in prison to marry her, and she'll be free. What could possibly go wrong? Benedict William Henry Wylde, scapegrace second son of the late Earl of Morcott and well-known rake, is in Newgate prison undercover, working for Bow Street. Georgie doesn't realize who he is when she marries him--and she most certainly never expects to bump into her very-much-alive, and very handsome, husband of convenience at a society gathering weeks later. Soon Wylde finds himself courting his own wife, hoping to win her heart since he already has her hand. But how can this seductive rogue convince brazen, beautiful Georgie that he wants to be together...until actual death do they part?"--Provided by publisher.
