A Most Unsuitable Suitor
At first lovely Emily Thorpe took the handsome Mr. Charles Denning to be a thief. Next she suspected this mysterious stranger to be a murderer. But soon she was sure he was guilty of an even graver sin: Mr. Denning was not a gentleman!

Faced with aristocratic prejudice on one hand, and a man's unbending pride on the other, Emily had only her wit, her wiles, and her headstrong heart to conquer both!
