Heiress Lady Bliss Penwood has known for years how things in her life would turn out, but unfortunately no one has ever had the courtesy to believe her. Even though she has provided practically irrefutable proof of her abilities time and again, Bliss has learned to become more and more inured to their ever-present doubt.At twenty-one, Bliss is determined that what she sees for her future will only become her reality if she follows her own advice and decides to choose a path. She knows the decision is wise when the path of her life opens up before her once a decision is made. Her only problem is her future husband. How should one go about marrying a man who doesn't trust fate? And despite her every effort, Lady Bliss begins to wonder if what she sees in her future is really happiness or just a cruel trick of her mind.Erich Benchley is a barber-surgeon, just like his father. As one of his father's most eccentric and unusual families, the Penwood's are responsible for recommending Dr. Benchley to their friends, securing him both a healthy clientele, a successful practice and quite a comfortable life.

But when she shows up at his office in Bristol years later and announces that he will be married soon, he takes it as a personal affront to his happiness and freedom. Even though he'd been privileged to having Bliss's input and direction for most of his life, it takes a while for the news to sink in.Once he begins seeing more of her, Eric realizes that Lady Bliss is dangerously tempting to him. Rather than trust her, he does everything he can to avoid the temptation. But when alarming events are set into motion, Eric finally begins to realize that he he has more than friendly feelings for quirky, beautiful Bliss.
