The Marriage Ring features an unusual hero - a rather stuffy, humorless man who seeks the approval of his father in most of his actions. Mind you, heroine Grace MacEachin is rather unusual, too, being an actress. She also hopes to win her father's approval after he is falsely accused of embezzlement, believing that if she clears his name, they can share a good relationship again.

Unfortunately for Grace, to clear her father's name she has to blacken Richard Lynsted's father and uncle's reputations, and Richard doesn't want that. He agrees to travel with Grace to Scotland to interview his father to get to the truth. Their journey isn't without incident; the more time they spend together, the more other things seem important.

I enjoyed most of this story, although certain aspects are rather unbelievable. The pacing is reasonable and the interactions between hero and heroine mostly believable, but the actual plot doesn't always work very well, particularly with regard to Richard's understanding of his father and uncle's actions.
