Arriving home after three year's absence. Lord Lyddington discovers that his sister is having his garden remodelled. Being a convivial soul, he is pleased to discover a friend and roistering companion in his gardener's nephew, 'Master' Sutcliffe. Young Sutcliffe is not all he seems however, and soon the Earl is obliged to reassess his previous ideas concerning appropriate female behaviour and attire.
Meanwhile, someone is seeking to sabotage the garden alterations. Plans are destroyed, a water garden is multilated, Sutcliffe senior is viciously attacked and even the Earl himself is assaulted. Who could be responsible?
The Earl's happiness depends on the swift resolution of this matter and he finds himself drawn into a world of rivalry, secret liaisons and even murder in his quest to restore order to his household.
