William Enton, fifth baron of Landow, has sworn revenge on the villains who caused the death of his wife. Drunk and agitated, he ventures into the lawless part of Sedonia to do just that. But the gentry do not belong here; he is soon wounded and unconscious. When he awakes he finds himself in the thief's den. Then an angel appears, with long blond hair that makes him forget his pain and his mission. But she is the princess of thieves, and he soon realises that nothing is as it seems, including the woman he is slowly coming to love.
