The fashionable Poor Relation hotel has rescued its six owners from genteel poverty, but they need ready cash for its upkeep. Once more, one of them must discreetly rob a rich relative.

The faded spinster Miss Letitia Tonks is dispatched to disguise herself as a highwayman and hold up the carriage that is transporting her nip-farthing sister and her lovely young niece, Cassandra. But by a twist of fate, their dashing prankish neighbor, Lord Eston, himself masked as a highwayman, does the deed for her--and grabs the opportunity to dazzle Cassandra with a swift kiss.

In London, while Cassandra is helping the poor relations uncover conspiracy at a rival hotel, she is recognized by Lord Eston. Although she cannot forget the highwayman, she could let herself feel a tendre for this handsome lord--did he not think himself far above young misses in the hotel trade! And, despite himself, Eston--smitten with her spirited ways and golden freckles--is soon drawn into the intrigues that swirl around The Poor Relation.
