Typical Laurens good time in Regency England and Scotland. The last of Martin and Celia Cynster's daughter, Angelica, has been abducted, as had her two sisters before her. Through diligent investigation by her relatives the kidnapping laird has been identified. He is the Earl of Glencrae of the Scottish Highlands. The why is still a mystery to the family but not to Angelica.
Ensconced in the earl's London mansion Dominic explains to Angelica just why he has been so intent on "collecting" one of Celia's daughters. Since Angelica, who had earlier spotted Dominic across a crowded ballroom - and determined that he would be her "hero" - it is no longer an abduction but a quest for Angelica to support her future husband and his clan.
A rousing good story. This was to a small degree better than the previous two stories which dealt with the earlier abductions. It's always good to follow a good story to the end.
The book contains a bonus short story "The Wedding Planner."
