MONEY CAN'T BUY THEM LOVE
As a young girl, Lady Victoria lost her parents - would have also lost a loving home had it not been for her aunt, who raised her as her own child. Unfortunately, Victoria's uncle's bad financial habits have now left the family on the verge of poverty. Although she believes all men to be frivolous and irresponsible, Victoria fears the only way to ensure her family's security is to marry a titled gentleman.
Jonathan, the Marquess of Drakefield, knows firsthand the costs - to the heart as well as to the purse - involved in marrying a pauper, and he vows never to make the same mistake twice. But destiny soon intervenes. Victoria's betrothed is fatally wounded by a thief, and he makes Jonathan promise to look after her. Winning the lady's trust is going to be a challenge, but first he must learn to trust the feelings in his own heart.
