The son of a baron, he has been reduced to stealing the resources he needs to reclaim his family legacy. Just when he's on the verge of success, his uncle asks him to put his plans on hold to help protect a wealthy countess. It's a distraction Geoffrey resents, even more so when he meets Lady Sara.
