In modern Memphis, Tennessee, beautiful, headstrong Missy Monroe has found the perfect fiancé, gorgeous and genteel Jeff Dalton, a man she can control in every way… and who bores her to tears.
Meanwhile back in antebellum Memphis, Missy’s distant cousin, shy, demure Melissa Montgomery, has been promised from birth to virile, arrogant Fabian Fontenot, a man whose fierce sensuality scares the starch out of her crinoline.
Missy and Melissa plan their weddings in the same house, on the same day, only 140 years apart.

And Melissa finds herself thrust into an amazing, bewildering new world… where she is only too happy to exchange her beast of a fiancé for the gallant soulmate who has now replaced him.
Will these two switched, mismatched brides find happiness with their destined grooms? Or will the fickle hand of Fate wreak havoc with them once again?
