Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Georgette Heyer is unbeatable." --Sunday Telegraph. A beautifully repackaged edition of one of the best of the best.

     Rich, handsome, darling of the ton, the hope of ambitious mothers and despair of his sisters — the Marquis of Alverstoke sees no reason to put himself out for anyone. Until a distant connection, ignorant of his selfishness, applies to him for help. Plunged headlong into one drama after another by the large and irrepressible Merriville family, Alverstoke is surprised to find himself far from bored. The lovely Charis may be as hen-witted as she is beautiful but Jessamy is an interesting boy, and Felix an engaging scamp. And, most intriguing of all, their strong-minded sister Frederica, who seems more concerned with her family's welfare than his own distinguished attentions.

Synopsis:

Rich, handsome, darling of the ton, the Marquis of Alverstoke at 37 sees no reason to put himself out for anyone, that is, until the strong-minded Frederica, who seems more concerned with her familys welfare than his attentions, catches his eye.
