Storyline

Lovejoy along with Eric are the sole professionals bidding in a country estate sale. He sells the lot to fellow dealer and barters for two antique clocks, one of which has no clockwork inside. While examining it, Lovejoy comes across a cache of beautiful love letters written by a young woman to a British officer just prior to the Battle of Waterloo, where he was killed. Eager to find the letters from the young soldier in order to sell them to a publisher, Lovejoy locates them at a riding school run by Sophie Fairfax, a cash-strapped, but very beautiful, descendant of the woman. After he learns from Charlie that Sophy's letters are copies and that the originals are on display in the regimental museum, Lovejoy must use all his skills as a con man to reunite him with his complementary letters.
