After the loss of his mother, Monty Navarro finds out he is actually a member of the aristocratic D’Ysquith family and is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst. Since his childhood sweetheart refuses to marry such a poor and hopeless chap, Monty sets out to get close to his new family and knock off all the heirs in his way. In the midst of his murderous – yet comedic – rampage, Monty must ask himself whether he will marry for prosperity or passion.
