In the middle ages, marriage by proxy was common, but not falling in love with the substitute. Caroline has found fault with all of her suitors. She thinks she has escaped her duties, until a marriage by proxy arrives. Her future husband is too weak and old to travel. Even the nunnery sounds more appealing than marriage to the old baron. Nicholas, the proxy, marries Caroline as a stand-in for her new husband. Nicholas, the baron's servant, must help her to fall in love with the baron's character. When Caroline falls for the proxy instead, what will she do about the baron? Especially, when she becomes pregnant with Nicholas' child? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Beatrice Pendergast.

When a pampered socialite in post-Civil War Boston seeks adventure and romance, she finds peril, heartache, and tragedy along with it. Answering an ad in The Matrimonial News, she secretly marries by proxy but is widowed before she gets to meet her husband. The fact that she's naive and unskilled in the ways of love when she finally encounters the man of her dreams only adds to her situation. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Fiona Honan-Bowes.

The Duchess of Cosway yearns for a man she has never met...her husband. Married by proxy as a child, Lady Isidore has spent years fending off lecherous men in every European court while waiting to meet her husband. She's determined to accept him, no matter how unattractive the duke turns out to be. When she finally lures Simeon Jermyn back to London, his dark handsomeness puts Isidore's worst fears to rest - until disaster strikes. The duke demands an annulment. Forsaking his adventuresome past, Simeon has returned to London ready to embrace the life of a proper duke, only to find that his supposed wife is too ravishing, too headstrong, and too sensual to be the docile duchess he has in mind. But Isidore will not give up her claim to the title - or him - without a fight. She will do whatever it takes to capture Simeon's heart, even if it means sacrificing her virtue. After all, a consummated marriage cannot be annulled. Yet in forcing Simeon into a delicious surrender, will Isidore risk not only her dignity - but her heart? 1. Language: English.
