Summary
"Three friends. One Wager. Winner takes all. The Earl--'Lucky Ned' Ashby. Pompous, preening, certain that he is beloved by everyone. The Miller--John Turner. Proud, forced to work as the Earl's secretary, their relationship growing ever more strained. The Doctor--Rhys Gray. Practical, peace-loving, but caught in the middle of two warring friends. Their wager is simple: By trading places with John Turner and convincing someone to fall in love with him, Ned plans to prove it's him the world adores, not his money. Turner plans to prove him wrong. But no one planned on Phoebe Baker, the unassuming governess who would fall into their trap, and turn everything on its head" --
