When sensible Miss Primrose Chartley discovered that her eccentric -- and quite wealthy -- grandfather had publicly announced the future disposition of his fortune, it explained why she and her penniless sisters had been abducted, proposed to, and showered with morning callers -- all of the male persuasion.
The reason was Raven's ransom: an indecent amount of money to be settled on one of the girls -- but only after all three of them were wed!
Yet the sly old scamp had created a more vexing predicament than he intended, for now Daisy had fallen for a gambler with a dubious title, and young Lily for a highwayman!
It would all come right in the end, Primrose was sure -- if only she could be certain her surprising tendre for Lord Gareth Rochester would win her the only prize she longed for . . . his love.
