When Avis Lambert is robbed--then kissed!--by a notorious Scottish highwayman, she learns several important lessons.
First: her fiancé, Edmund, is a sniveling coward.
Second: the highwayman is neither Scottish nor a man.
Avis recognizes quickly that Edmund's lovely cousin, Olivia, is posing as the dashing outlaw...and for very good reason. Desperate to replenish the family coffers, now empty because of Edmund’s thievery, Olivia has turned to a life of crime herself. Can Avis convince Olivia to let her help? And above all--will Avis receive more of those devastating kisses?
