Baroness Easdale is betrothed to a man of unlikeable character, by order of her guardians. She
is distraught, but when circumstances allow for a brief respite from his company and that of his

Hugh has been skilled in assuming many disguises, but when he takes on the role of a player to
find and bring back a runaway fiancé, he discovers that all the skill in the world cannot help him

Together they fight, love, and plan only to find what they seek most is a treasure of the heart.
They just pray that the powers that be will allow them to live long enough to accomplish their goals.
