The Honorable Rosalind Wensley enlists a smuggling gang to rescue soldiers who are injured while fighting Napoleon and bring them back to England. But the rescue operation is threatened when the Earl of Melvyrn shows up, looking for a spy ring. Now she must hide her identity as a youth who works for the smugglers from the Earl’s prying eyes.
Melvyrn, on assignment for the War Office, infiltrates the smuggling gang to locate an old man in France who possibly aids a spy ring. But when Melvyrn tries to befriend the lad who acts as a translator, the smugglers won’t let him get close. Melvyrn also is intrigued by the lad’s resemblance to Miss Wensley, and suspects a family connection. However when Melvyrn discovers Rosalind is the lad, he resolves to put a stop to her nefarious activities for her own safety. Rosalind, however, has other plans.
