Before seting sail for England, Miss Jane Sterling, the new owner of Lyon Hall, envisioned stone towers, a grand sweep of lawn, and servants in livery. Instead, she finds a crumbling manse, waist high weeds, and a crotchety butler. However, Lyon Hall does boast one jewel, a satin cloak worn by an ancient king. When a handsome nobleman appears on her doorstep, Jane suspects he is after more than merely a room for the night. Is it her virtue or her cloak? Rakish Lord Devlin does not understand why the American beauty sniffs at his title and laughs at his fripperies, or how she manages to inspire such a tendre in him. This plainly impossible Jane is stealing his heart. If Devlin succeeds in his secret mission for the Crown, he could lose a precious treasure, the chance to win Jame's love.
