Minuette Sinclair thought her biggest problem was getting out of her aunt’s finishing school as a proper Victorian lady. But now she’s pretending to be engaged and her fake fiancé is in debt up to his neck. What’s more, her father is in a Caribbean jail, falsely accused of murder. A legendary lost necklace might be their salvation and Min is determined to find it.

Amidst treachery and double crosses, it may be more than a necklace getting stolen—it may be their hearts.
