It was simply mortifying! Mariette has been extracting her cousin from scandalous situations for years, but losing the family ring to a cardcheating nobleman is the outside of enough. Never a women to sit idly by, she charts out her course of action: Disguised as a highwayman, she will hold up Lord Malcolm\'s carriage and demand that he return the heirloom.
Unfortunatly, She doesn\'t take into account the possibility of finding herself on the wrong end of a pistol...or the peculiar feelings that steal over her at the sight of the devilishly attractive Malcolm. Enmeshed in a web of intrigue and desire that reaches across the sea to France, she must retrieve the ring and rescue her handsom lord from a dangerous foe...even if it means risking her life--and losing her heart--along the way.
