    When young widow Lady Lovelace realized she had been swindled to near-bankruptcy by her curmudgeonly cousin, she knew she would have to marry again for money.

And so these two attractive fortune-hunters somehow found each other and, before long, popped into marriage - and into the bridal chamber - only to discover they were both virtually penniless.
