The Earl and the Plain Jane by Cheryl Bolen

Lord Slade must marry an heiress to honor a deathbed vow to his father, but why is it his attraction to a plain and penniless woman keep growing?

The earl and the plain jane

Bereft of beauty as well as fortune, the exceedingly plain Miss Jane Featherstone has failed to attract any suitor during her three Seasons. Rather than be a burden to her brother and his obnoxious wife, Miss Featherstone vows to accept the first man who asks—even though she's always worshipped a lord who's far above her touch. . .

Lord Slade must marry an heiress in order to honor the deathbed vow he made to his father, and he needs Miss Featherstone's help in wooing her beautiful cousin. After her initial anger, Miss Featherstone agrees to his scheme, telling him she's doing so because she admires his Parliamentary record of humanitarian legislation and his reverence for truth. But the more he's with the two cousins, the more attracted he becomes to Miss Featherstone. What's a man of his word to do? Break a vow to a beloved father—or follow his heart with Miss Featherstone?

Sample text:

As much as Miss Jane Featherstone adored her lovely cousin, Lady Sarah Bertram, she most decidedly disliked riding in Hyde Park with her on this fine May day. Not because of any fault of Lady Sarah's but because of Miss Featherstone's own unpardonable jealousy. Her clandestine envy was positively illogical (and Miss Jane Featherstone had always prided herself on her ability to master the principles of logic). It wasn't as if any of the Most Eligible Matrimonial Catches would have given a second glance to the exceedingly drab Miss Featherstone were the dazzling Lady Sarah not perched beside her
