When Royden unexpectedly arrives at the inn Sarah is working at, she is baffled to find that the viscount is kindhearted and has no recollection of Sarah at all. The man she believes to be Viscount Royden is actually his twin brother, Max. Sarah is soon caught up in trying to help Max uncover the viscount’s terrible plans to secure more wealth.
