Abstract

Lord Allan Harrowby, upon his return to England, finds himself in a difficult predicament. He needs to get to the Florida sunshine where he can claim and marry the woman he is smitten with - a wealthy heiress, Cynthia Meyrick. Will his plans to buy insurance for his love life herald bliss or disaster? And will a mysterious stranger who claims to be Lord Harrowby derail the route to the altar?
