Author's Notes: Many thanks to my outstanding team of betas, gilpin25, godricgal, and just_a_dram, without whom I wouldn't have finished this story, understood the finer points of 19th century, American-British money-for-title marriages, written coherent sentences with correctly spelled words, or, most importantly, found Cora.
