George, Earl of Haworth, has died in a riding accident and left Haworth Park in disorder.
Captain Nicholas Bonham of Wellington’s Peninsular Regiment, the 52nd Light Infantry, returns from fighting the Napoleonic wars to see his brother laid to rest. A skilled rider, George’s death remains a mystery, as does the parlous state of his finances. Haworth Park must be sold unless Nicholas can find a swift solution.
When his neighbor, Sir Marcus Mirrington offers Nicholas an answer to his problems, Nicholas accepts his daughter’s hand in marriage. But Miss Caroline Mirrington harbors a dangerous secret of her own.
