Abigail Wendover has no time for love.

She is far too busy protecting her niece, who has fallen madly in love with a suspected fortune-hunter.

But her efforts become vastly more complicated with the arrival of Miles Calverleigh, the black sheep of his family - a reckless bachelor with a scandalous past.

Abby soon discovers that, despite successfully managing her niece's love life, she has far less control over her own unruly heart.
'Elegant, witty and rapturously romantic' Katie Fforde

Our customer reviews

If you want to read a prime example of the beautiful writing of Heyer, then this is the book. It is choc full of dialogue that will have you tittering and annoying everyone else around you. The accuracy of her historic detailing only makes this more enjoyable. My only query is why are none of her stories ever filmed? They'd knock Jane Austen off the more
