Mandy, a modern young Texan, now makes her home in Scotland with her husband Quinn, a Scottish viscount. She was given a valuable pearl necklace by her newly-discovered grandfather, the Earl of Dunblane, but her mother has decided that the necklace should be hers instead. She hires a Dallas lawyer to go to Scotland and get the pearls, but he runs up against the combined power of Mandy’s grandfather, her husband, and her father-in-law, the Earl of Morleton.
The powerful threesome wants to keep the nasty fight a secret from Mandy, but Quinn’s sister finds out about it and tells her, causing the two women to take forbidden action and earn themselves punishment from the furious viscount.
When matters take a surprising turn, the three peers realize they have to beat the Texas lawyer at his own game, no matter what the cost. Mandy’s well-being is at stake.
