“Marry Me!” That is what her cousin Gareth asked Delphie Carteret to do. It was just a make-believe ceremony, and, in exchange, Delphie's ailing mother would receive an annuity for life.
Delphic was in no position to refuse. She was already losing the struggle to support herself and her mother. But Delphie soon discovered that she was bound by law to the marriage and bound by love to more lies. Warner Library of Regency Romance #1
