Rejected by Miss Milborne, the Incomparable, for his unsteadiness of character, wild Lord Sheringham is bent on avenging Fate.

Vowing to marry the first woman to cross his way, who should he see but Hero Wantage, the young and charmingly unsophisticated girl, who has loved him since childhood ...

Reviews

My favourite historical novelist -- stylish, romantic, sharp, and witty. Her sense of period is superb, her heroines are enterprising, and her heroes dashing. I owe her many happy hours.

Margaret Drabble

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to.

Katie Fforde

A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds.

Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph

Sparkling.
