When Thalia, Erato and Clio, three seventeen-year-old girls, are mysteriously summoned to this fast-paced world by Hestia, an aunt they never knew they had, they are shocked to learn they are triplets and the rightful heiresses to their deceased mother's fortune.

All they need to do is find a way to claim the fortune from their greedy half-brother, Charles who refuses to bestow any of their inheritance upon them unless all three leave London and never return.
