When Phineas Bromley suddenly becomes Viscount Hamilton, his world is thrown into a tailspin. More used to battlefields than ballrooms, the adjustment to town life is not easy. But there's nothing like a little mystery to liven up what seems like a mundane life. Aware that someone is stealing from the family coffers, Phineas must come up with a way to expose the culprits. Posing as a highwayman in an effort to infiltrate their world proves dangerous - but not as dangerous as his unexpected attraction to the young lady next door. They may have teamed up to solve these crimes, but Phineas is starting to believe that he may just want to make this partnership...permanent.
