The premise of this title is so ridiculous, I don’t even know how to begin… ah well, here we go.
Agnus Beresford, a bank manager, gets hooked on online gambling and embezzles money from his branch of a bank to pay for his wife’s medical treatment. The wife dies anyway and he’s left in crippling debt, disgrace, and depression. The heroine, his daughter Grace Beresford, decides to try to settle the case outside of court by going straight to his boss, Duke Herrera. Conveniently, this “hero” needs to marry someone fast in order to keep his hold on his grandfather’s estate. Three guesses as to what happens.
