An Agent for Bernadette (The Pinkerton Matchmaker Series) by Jo Grafford

An Agent for Bernadette

Poor little rich girl Bernadette Chambers is weary of being told what to do. All her life, she’s been instructed how to dress, how to act, and who she is allowed to befriend. However, she draws the line at being told she has to marry a man she’s never met, even if refusing to marry him means being cut off from her family’s wealth.

Realizing she’ll need a job to support herself, she decides to become a Pinkerton Agent, only to discover she’ll be required to marry a fellow agent (at least in name only) before receiving her first case.

Park Harrington is a shipping tycoon by day and an agent by night, which leaves him little time for courting. When the oldest daughter of his family’s greatest competitor refuses to honor their arranged marriage, he despairs of ever finding a suitable woman to lead to the altar. When he finds out the name of the Lady Pinkertons' newest recruit is none other than the spoiled debutante who refused his hand in marriage, he decides to get revenge. He personally requests to be matched to her!

Read an excerpt:
“You can’t be serious, Father!” Bernadette Chambers stared, aghast, at James Fitzgerald Chambers III, shipping magnate extraordinaire and owner of Chambers & Sons Industries. “Why should I be the first to marry among my siblings? I’m not even the oldest.” 
Her father’s dark gaze pierced her from his position at the head of their dinner table, as he settled back in his throne-like chair. He twirled one end of his mustache, a gesture he made only when he was supremely annoyed. “You’ve been promised to Park Harrington since the day you were born, daughter, and he is ready to collect on that promise."
