Overview

“Only those that are married, or cannot be married, hate to hear of marriage.”

Word spreads fast in Restoration England. When romantic idealist Valentine makes a secret return from exile in France, he hears whispers that his lover Christina has been untrue. The thing is, Valentine is only jealous because his friend Vincent said that the hapless rogue Ranger had taken a liking to Christina. So while Vincent and Ranger run amok, Valentine takes it upon himself to discover the truth. But can he see the wood from the trees…?
