Format: Hardcover
Lord Blayden had been playing cards a little more than was wise. In an effort to support his pastime he decides to either marry off his daughter to a rather elderly lecher or have his son marry a cit with a suitable settlement of course. At first Marcus is reluctant but when he discovers the alternative for his sister he concedes and a marriage is quickly arranged.
Fleur's French mama had been a ballet dancer, and Fleur had kept up her daily practise on the bar. Marcus affairs take him away from his wife and she visits her family. Grandfather has need for a dancer for his ballet...
Highly improbable? perhaps but not impossible. The story is plausible, well written and gives a taste of how marriages were arranged.
From the dust cover of the Ulverscroft Large Print edition...
What was so improper about being a dancer? Seventeen-year-old Fleur could not understand it. Her marriage had been an arranged affair but she and Marcus might well have come to terms had not Napoleon's escape from Elba called him away. When he returned to find his wife pursuing a successful career in the ballet, Marcus was furious. He resorted to stern measures to discipline his erring wife, and in doing so discovered that he infinitely preferred the impulsive, loving child to an insipid paragon of propriety.
