He meets the enigmatic Miss Sparrow who arranges for him to “borrow” the identity of a rich French count. That’s when he realizes he’s in the exact time and place where his family’s missing treasure, the priceless emerald known as “The Heart of Saharanpur”, was last seen. However, when he spies the legendary gem around the neck of a green-eyed beauty at the Christmas Costume Ball, he’s not sure which treasure he wants more—the emerald or the masked beauty wearing it.
Trouble is, he has no idea who she is. A wealthy widow? An affluent ingénue? A moneyed mademoiselle? Or perhaps a green-eyed maid named Emily Drewett, who was offered a one-time chance to forget being a maid for one day in order to play Cinderella?
