Delavel Harmon, fifth Duke of Exton, virtually stole the Holland tiara from the too innocent man known as Stephen Holland. Stephen blamed it all on Gareth Carew. Stephen's soon to be married sister, Susannah, believed it too. Fact was, Gareth had tried to stop Stephen from gambling the tiara away to Delavel. So Gareth washed his hands of it all and left for his waiting government assignment.
After three years, Susannah returned to London from Bengal as a widow. She brought her maid, Anjuli, and her pet monkey, Chatterji, with her. Susie's one goal was to steal back the tiara and put a paste fake in its place. Gossip told that the Duke planned to sell the tiara so the switch had to be done soon. However, more than she had that same idea!
After three years of marriage to the Duke, Jane had finally met the man she loved. However, her husband was always keeping a close eye on her. Jane brought Susie and Gareth into her husband's suspicious gaze in hopes of keeping her real love's name secret. But the Duke's jealousy was a dangerous thing and may end up claiming all their lives!
