Too Precious to Lose

Beautiful eighteen-year-old Norina is dismayed when her widowed father Lord Sedgewyn quickly remarries to society beauty Violet – and even more so when she discovers her new stepmother's wicked plot to poison her and inherit a fortune held in trust for Norina.
In fear for her life, she flees in disguise, securing a position as secretary to a temporarily blinded French Nobleman who whisks her away to Paris and then to his opulent South of France villa.
Just as her rakish new employer's eyes begin to heal and are opened to Norina's innocent loveliness, the evil Violet's henchmen kidnap her.
Facing certain death in a monastic cell, Norina realises that her employer, Le Marquis de Charlamont, will never know that she has given him her heart –

    “We must act out our parts,” said the Marquis, “and be careful not to forget them.”
    Norina looked up at him in amazement, then realized he was about to kiss her.
    His lips had almost touched hers when she cried,
    “Non! Non!”
    She was breathing quickly and was not certain what she should do.
    Then the Marquis said quietly, “I thought you had agreed to play the part I have assigned to you.”
    “But – we were only – pretending!” Norina managed to gasp
