Marc-Ange Draco, a crime syndicate leader, offers Bond a one million dollar dowry if he will marry his troubled daughter Tracy di Vicenzo. Bond refuses the money, but agrees to romance Tracy if Draco will reveal the location of Blofeld's hideout. Bond meets his match with the enchanting, beautiful and intelligent Tracy. To his surprise, Bond falls deeply in love with Tracy.
