Summary

Made for Me is the first of a three-book series focused on the journey of Danielle Grant, a talented and successful gold trader who lost her mother in college and since graduate school has done little more than work, take care of her ailing father and go on periodic dates with divorced, older men who are as uninterested in a relationship as she is. Her life takes a dramatic turn when she takes a job in Zurich and meets Lars Egle, a striking, intense and single professional in her new company. He reiterates key sections of the multi-page contract Danielle has signed regarding restrictions against becoming involved with clients. Confident she can maintain a high, thick barrier against romantic distractions, Danielle agrees to go out dancing with her friends and the young owner of a yacht company, Andre Mettler. His reserved personality intrigues her more than any older man ever had, giving her months of site-seeing excursions and late night passion. Her new world of romance in a foreign country is disrupted when she learns Andre presents conflicts with her employment. Only then does she realize her feelings for him run much deeper than she ever thought—or expected. Torn between the terms of her employment contract and fulfilling her commitment, Danielle walks away from the arms of one man, unknowingly into the arms of another who loves her just as deeply. Just when she is prepared to take the ultimate step in her new relationship, her life is upended in a circumstance so unexpected, full of both loss but new life, that she is forced to be grateful she gave up the short, safer path of immediate gratification for the harder road that provides long-term happiness and fulfillment.

    The Marquis of Stowe is on the verge of a dreadful scandal that threatens to ruin both him and the lovely, but married, Lady Burnham. 
    Knowing that their secret is out and that her husband will be plotting revenge, the Marquis casts about desperately for a way to avoid the scandal, which he knows is inevitable despite the wealth and good looks that have made him a darling of the Beau Monde. 
    Seeing a perfect solution, he decides to offer marriage to the Duke of Dawlish’s daughter and leaves for the country. Surely the Duke will be grateful for his daughter to make such a match?
    There is only one problem – marrying the Duke’s daughter might provide a way out of his current dilemma, but having met her the Marquis is dismayed by her dullness. Horrified at the sacrifice he would have to make, he suddenly realises that there is another way to put the cuckolded husband off the scent and preserve his freedom – as long as he can find a young woman happy to go along with his seemingly foolproof idea.
    Eager to renew his acquaintance with Ajanta Tiverton, the beautiful daughter of a local Vicar, the Marquis hurtles to the Vicarage to tell her his plan and the role that only she can play. 
    Certain that this will get him out of immediate danger and sure that he can offer an attractive financial incentive to help the impoverished family, it seems that if their daring charade is successful everyone involved will benefit. All Ajanta has to do is play her part and all will be well.
    Swept into a rich luxurious world they have never known before, the Marquis sets out to charm the Vicar and Ajanta’s sisters. Delighted by their new surroundings and excited by the attention of the eloquent Marquis they cannot believe the happiness Ajanta has bought into their lives. 
    But the Marquis is not the only one masking the truth – Ajanta too has a family secret she would prefer not to share and, as the deception continues and feelings run high, she cannot help but worry what will happen in the final Act of their play and where the curtain will fall.
