In order to procure the cash necessary to rebuild his estate, the Earl of Allsbrook decided to barter his title and his future: he would marry the willful daughter of a wealthy merchant. True, she was pleasing in form and face, and she had an eye for fashion. Still, deep in his heart, Henry wished to marry for love.
