Lady Aubrey has a problem. Several problems. Her childhood love, Ethan, has returned home from the Crusades, but he’s more interested in winning his land back than wooing her. She has to rescue a pair of nuns who are being held prisoner in Derby Castle’s tower by the sadistic Sheriff Buxton. And to top it all off she’s developing scandalous feelings for Buxton’s lackey, the dark and devilish Crispin. Faced with all that, what’s a girl to do but don a disguise as the Derbywood Bandit and take matters into her own hands?
