The Heartless Scheme of a Heartless Man . . .
To inherit his father's wealth, Viscount Blackwood had to marry. But he wanted a very brief marriage, one that would not interfere for long with his pleasures.
So he decided to marry a dying woman . . . and chose one from a hellish London workhouse. She became his wife in a bizarre candlelight ceremony that left his friends aghast and his mistress wild with fury! Then the Blackwood bride recovered, and the viscount found himself trapped . . . in a Marriage of Convenience that was proving very inconvenient indeed!
