Description

Beautiful heiress Judith Taverner has her pick of London suitors.

But her luck takes a turn for the worst when her hapless brother, Peregrine, becomes the target of a would-be-assassin.

To Judith's great annoyance, their mysterious guardian - the handsome Earl of Worth - seems far more intent on wooing her than saving her brother, but all is not as it seems...

When the truth is revealed, Judith will finally discover if the Earl is after her money or her heart.

Review quote

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to. * Katie Fforde * 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 * A writer of great wit and style-. I've read her books to ragged shreds. * Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph *
