The Musketeers are tasked with bringing in Labarge, a regional intendant being arrested for the murder of two Musketeers. The Red Guard intervene and a vicious fight breaks out. The rivalry between the regiments hits an all time high so the king calls for a contest - the best from each side to decide once and for all which one is the stronger. D'Artagnan sees the contest as a way of finally proving himself worthy to be a Musketeer and to get revenge on Labarge for burning his home farm to the ground. To do this he must first learn to control his impetuous nature and to fight with his head instead of his heart.moreless

As well as a female ghost, old Lord Wakering has treasures which once belonged to Sir Walter Raleigh, and both Lovejoy and Mary-John Lovejoy, his American cousin, want them. Some of Lord Wakering's things are stolen, and Lovejoy travels in hot pursuit to the Carolinas, where he is not made welcome. Charlotte has to fly over to get him out of trouble.
