Love struck at a most inopportune time!
It was with some trepidation that the Marquis of Jarred presented himself to Miss Olivia Anthony--the woman his uncle demanded he marry. Wonder of wonders, Livvie possessed refreshing candour and breathtaking beauty. In love at last, Jarred hoped their courtship would gallop merrily to its desired conclusion.
Yet Livvie hardly expected to fall in love at this time in her life. Her chief wish was to find her missing brother Jack. To her joy--and dismay--she discovered he had become a notorious highwayman! Surely the marquis would never sully his family's name by wedding the sister of a common criminal!
