The hero is a dissolute baron who's given up on himself. The heroine is the daughter of a dissolute Frenchman and a scandalous Englishwoman who's come to her father because she had nowhere else to go. And winds up for sale by Dad to give him a fresh stake in a card game. The hero buys her, more because he sees her desperation than anything, and they work out a marriage of convenience that will give them what they both want. Except the hero seems to be determined to kill himself through neglect, and the heroine doesn't want him to die before he gives her a child. There are dark pasts and angst galore in this story. A time or two, I got tired of all the wading through angst, but it was still an excellent story well worth reading. (Ha! I got a SIGNED copy. :) )
