Now Procurer is a bit of a problematic title and usually has certain implications but in this story it's a woman who finds women who need help and match them to men who want a no-strings attached woman. There's a promise of no non-consentual activity but this is a romance novel and we all know that there will be nookie, eventually.
Jean-Luc Bauduin is a wealthy wine merchant but there is a possibility that he's also the heir ro an aristocratic title, lands and a promised wife. He is not interested in an arranged marriage so he hires the Procurer to find him someone who will help. Lady Sophia Acton is out of luck and almost destitute, playing the wife is easy enough but leaving him once he's finished investigating things? That could be a different story.
I liked it, you could see where the tension arose with them, however, no woman in posession of a brain in the period would fritter away monies that were her own, no matter how much they trust their husband, the question is would they trust that his heir would treat them kindly if he died suddenly.
Even today, a woman should take good care of her own finances and know that paperwork after death is a royal pain.
