Resigned to her lot as a poor relation after the death of her parents, Miss Sophie Fulham is astonished when she learns that her cruel uncle has gambled her future, and won, choosing to marry her to the notorious rake-shame Viscount Markham so that Sir George can regain the social status lost to him. 

Content with his carefree bachelor existence, Peter, Lord Markham, is angered to find out that his father has fallen prey to the renowned cardsharp, Sir George Fulham, and he has lost almost all of his wealth. He becomes even more angered when he learns that, as the only recourse he can take, he must marry Sophie to save his family from social and financial ruin. 

Deception and rumours, dislike and mistrust ensues, proving the path to love is quite often an extremely rocky journey indeed.

The sentence starting with 'As...' doesn't make much sense; perhaps a revision...?

Weaving a good plot here n at the same time great information on the characters though not heavy n therefore not boring descriptions. Beautiful writing. Will be continuing my read of your story.
