One of best-known and most beloved historical novelists will capture a whole new audience in a stunning repackage.
In all her twenty- five years, lovely Venetia Lanyon has never been further than Harrogate, nor enjoyed the attentions of any but her two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then, in one extraordinary encounter, she meets a neighbour she only knows by reputation- the infamous Lord Damerel- and before she knows better, is egging on a libertine whose way of life has scandalised the North Riding for years.
“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.”
“Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic.”
“A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds.”
