The marriage between Nan Forsyth and Jervis Weare is a purely business arrangement – to Jervis. But for Nan there is true romance behind it – a romance which began for her in childhood days – and she is content to be considered for the time a scheming adventuress. But, as she soon discovers, both she and Jervis are now the targets of a golden-haired devil and her villainous partner who’ll stop at nothing in this story of lively and profound thrills.
