Summary

When it comes to the riches of love, the heart is the crown jewel. When Anne Fredericks, having very nearly reached the age of four and twenty but still unmarried, learns that she is to visit Cheltenham for the Season, her heart cannot help but beat a little faster. It was in Cheltenham, five years earlier, that she had met and fallen for the handsome Richard Wykeham, only for him to disappear—quite suddenly—from her life. And now it’s on the road to Cheltenham that their coach is waylaid—yet strangely, nothing is stolen. How long will it be before Anne solves the mystery of the notorious highwayman known as the perfect gentleman?
