"You will be hanged from a gibbet for your crimes..."
Even as the handsome Gentleman spoke, Idona Overton saw the other Highwayman pointing a pistol at him. Without thinking, she fired her own pistol....
Idona was horrified to learn that before her father was killed in a duel he had gambled away his house, his estate, and even herself to the Marquis of Wroxham.
Fortunately, her first unconventional meeting with this cynical dandy led to his introducing Idona to London society as his ward. Bewildered by the intrigues and deceptions of the fashionable world Idona soon fled back to the country.
Only when the Marquis followed to draw her close to his hard athletic body did she realise that the turn of a card had won them the most precious prize in the world - Love!
