~Plot Synpopsis~
Markrute, who holds the mortgage on the estate of Lord Tancred, insists that his niece, Velma, marry
Tancred in order to improve his own social standing. Velma refuses and cuts all financial ties with her
uncle. She later meets Tancred and, not knowing who he is, falls madly in love with him. Velma's brother
is charged with embezzlement, and her uncle offers to make good the boy's accounts if she marries
Tancred. She finds out then that her lover and her prospective husband are one and the same man and,
feeling bitter and tricked, marries him. The marriage remains one in name only until Tancred, frustrated
and disappointed, threatens to get a divorce. Velma then realizes the depth of her love for Tancred, a love
that increases when she learns that he had paid off the mortgage before they were married, attesting that
he married her for love alone.
