Ireland. Circa, 1780. With wealth and title destined to go to their elder brothers, the younger sons of rich Irish families risk spending their lives in poverty, or worse, in the church. To avoid this cruel fate, they have no choice but to resort to abducting rich young society ladies. The abductions are carried out under the strictest codes of gentlemanly conduct. Saddled up and wearing masks the young men steal their captives from under their father's noses. They have until dawn to persuade their would be brides into instant marriage, thus securing their financial futures. Byrne and Strang, two handsome and dashing members of the abduction club bite off a little more than they can chew when they target the feisty Kennedy sisters!
