Stranded in England, Mercy Starling takes a job working for a medieval re-enactment company. Dressing in armour and wielding swords is a blast, but the best part is going to Bestwood Hall and meeting its intriguing new owner. The painfully shy Alden Ainslie is overwhelmed by the medieval reenactors who invade his house but he's drawn to the bubbly Mercy. And he valiantly joins in the fun, dodging not just arrows but also some pretty suspicious attacks on himself. Someone wants him to give up on the house. But Alden is desperate to prove himself, and win the heart of his lady fair.
