Can rich, but frail, young Victoria find happiness with a virile and handsome young lord? She can when the lord has been studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh and discovers the reason for her illness. Jonathon Fordyce inherits an impressive of the Marquess of Burlingale and a mountain of debts. His only recourse is to marry an heiress. Victoria's father is a wealthy "Cit" and is ready to settle an awe-inspiring dowry on his already independently wealthy daughter. When Victoria agrees to marry Lord Burlingale she stipulates that she can be a wife to him in name only. She has been sickly most of her life and knows that she cannot carry out the normal duties of a wife, and could certainly never be a mother. The trouble begins when Victoria is restored to health and finds herself falling in love with her handsome, Greek-God of a husband--and he with her.show more
