THE MARQUESS METHOD
The Beautiful Barringtons
Lady Theodosia Barrington is practically begging to be ruined.
That’s the assumption of the Marquess of Haven after spying Theodosia at a house party given by the Duke of Granby. After his father left him little else but a title and a crumbling estate, Haven is in desperate need of an heiress. Not only is Theodosia rich as Croesus and beautiful, but she’s also a Barrington. Her brother is Leo Murphy, owner of Elysium and the man Haven holds responsible for ruining his father.
Theodosia is the solution to all of Haven’s problems.
THE VICTORIAN TAPEWORM DIET
The craze started in the early years of the 19th century. The dieter would swallow a pill containing the cyst of a tapeworm. As the tapeworm matured it would absorb food and the dieter would lose weight, so you could eat whatever you wanted. Once the desired weight was achieved, the dieter swallowed an anti-parasitic pill to excrete the tapeworm. Sounds so simple and incredibly gross.
