Storyline

With his only asset being his title, then when Lord Arthur Waring seriously injures Helene Von Gerold in a riding accident, he borrows money from his dishonorable rich younger brother Mark in order to pay for her medical treatment. Mark drives a hard bargain, however, and makes Arthur agree to commit suicide in six months, thus allowing Mark to inherit the title, if he cannot pay back the loan. Toward the end of the allotted time, Arthur still has not been able to raise the money. Then, just as Arthur is about to kill himself, Helen's father overturns a lamp and sets fire to his house, and Arthur, hearing the alarm, rushes to the scene. Mark also hurries to the Von Gerold's house, but he dies en route when he is thrown from his horse. Arthur rescues Helen, and then, having inherited Mark's fortune, he confidently begins a romance with her. Written by Pamela Short
