Appearances Are Deceiving . . .
Who will marry Miss Lucy Bowes now that her luckless brother stands accused as a thief? But though Lucy’s brother has stolen her future, her dearest friend, the marchioness, has stood by her — and invited Lucy to Dashwood, her country house. Alas, a more daring thief has made his way within its walls, and, strangely, touches Lucy’s heart. Faced with Lucy's pistol, the masked man bluffs his way out, but he will be back!
But Love Sees Through All
Captain Ewan Sandeford has vowed to protect Dashwood’s inhabitants from all harm. Yet Dashwood hides a letter that binds the Captain’s brother to a debt he does not owe. If Miss Bowes would put down her pretty little pistol, he would be most grateful, as he has a job to do and wishes her no harm. Quite the contrary, for she is fearless, funny, and a jewel any would-be thief would be proud to steal.
