While in route to her wedding to the Duke of Sussex, Lady Sarah Davies is kidnapped at gunpoint by a roguish looking bandit. Desperate to marry, Lady Sarah will do anything to escape her captor. Her brother's future and own ancestral estate depends on her marrying the duke.
Unbeknownst to her, her kidnapper has his own agenda for taking her, to financially ruin his brother, the Duke of Sussex. Having been falsely accused of murder and now thought to be dead, George Stoddard, the rightful Duke of Sussex seeks to clear his name and have his revenge on his deceitful brother, all at the same time. But when an impossible attraction builds between Lady Sarah and himself, all bets are off...and revenge may no longer be the most important thing on George's mind.
