Following that incident, Diana refused to accept crap from her ugly husband even when David vanishes.
Four years later, Huntle... Ride The Winter Wind
Jove, April 2002
Lady Alissa Alana Collington learns that for her to inherit the family fortune she must marry before her twenty-fifth birthday or her odious uncle gains everything. That would not be a difficult accomplishment except Alissa has one week to that particular birthday and has no suitors.
In fact, several of the men who have courted her have been murdered; leaving Alissa to conclude her uncle killed them.
