SYNOPSIS: WHAT'S THE STORY?
  • THE STORY

    Monty Navarro has just received some really great news! He's a long-lost member of a noble family and could become the next Earl of Highhurst. There are only eight minor issues, namely the other relatives who precede him in line for the title.

    So Monty does what any ambitious gentleman would do: he sets out to eliminate them one by one, all while juggling his mistress (she's after more than just love) and his fiancée (she's his cousin, but who's keeping track?). Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way into Highhurst Castle... and be done in time for tea.
