‘Absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes . . . Utter, immersive escapism’ SOPHIE KINSELLA
‘One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer’s books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen’s’ JOANNE HARRIS
Serena Carlow’s former love now controls her future happiness.
After her father’s unexpected death, Serena’s jilted ex-fiance – the Marquis of Rotherham – is made the sole trustee of her wealth and marriage prospects.
Eager for an escape, she moves to Bath and encounters her childhood sweetheart, the dashing Hector Kirkby – but will Rotherham approve the match?
Before long, they are all entangled in a confusion of marriage and manners the likes of which Regency Bath has rarely seen.
