“But these are vital aspects of marriage. If one cannot discuss them, what’s the use in meeting at all? It’s like trying to decide what you’ll have for dinner without mentioning food.”
Wisteria Vasilver does wish to marry. Truly. She just doesn’t understand why society has to make arranging a match so unnecessarily difficult.
Nikola Striker, Lord of Fireholt, expects he’ll wed … someday. But not now, and never to a rich icicle-woman like Miss Vasilver. No matter how much his parents might want the match, or his house might need her dowry. Besides, he has his own problems — most of them people who need his help as a mind-healer.
Lord Justin Comfrey, Viscount of Comfrey, would be more than happy to help Striker with his financial troubles, and not just to ensure that Miss Vasilver’s dowry doesn’t tempt Striker into marriage. If only he could find some way to make his proud, stubborn friend accept the money!
