A Plucky Heiress Caught Between Suspicion . . . And Desire
With a gasp of dismay, Shelby read the letter informing her of her grandfather's grave illness. He had lived alone at Wychwood for years, with only his valet, his dog, and of course, the famous Jewels of Ali. Her heart pounding, she rushed to his estate – and stepped into a tangled web of intrigue.
To Shelby's surprise her grandfather was hale and hearty, but had narrowly escaped death from several "accidents." Equally surprising, his quiet house was crammed with relatives and one mysterious, terribly handsome houseguest called "Gill," who aroused her suspicion – and disturbing thoughts...of kissing!
Then Shelby's grandfather announced she would inherit the Jewels of Ali, and her four bachelor cousins were suddenly offering for her hand. What should she do? Someone at Wychwood was a villain, and Shelby needed an ally she could trust, a strong arm she could lean on, and a suitor she could truly love!
