Description
"A writer of great wit and style... I've read her books to ragged shreds." —Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph

Horatia Winwood is simply helping her family

When the Earl of Rule proposes marriage to her sister Lizzie, Horatia offers herself instead. Her sister is already in love with someone else, and Horatia is willing to sacrifice herself for her family's happiness. Everyone knows she's no beauty, but she'll do her best to keep out of the Earl's way and make him a good wife. And then the Earl's archenemy, Sir Robert, sets out to ruin her reputation...

The Earl of Rule has found just the wife he wants

Unbeknownst to Horatia, the Earl is enchanted by her. There's simply no way he's going to let her get into trouble. Overcoming some misguided help from Horatia's harebrained brother and a hired highwayman, the Earl routs his old enemy, and wins over his young wife, gifting her with a love that she never thought she could expect.

"Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen."—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

WHAT READERS SAY:

"I couldn't put it down, and I couldn't stop laughing!"

"The story is brilliant, and the characters are easy to fall in love with."

"I've read every novel by Georgette Heyer... this is definitely one of her best... very original and funny."

"One of Georgette Heyer's more intriguing tales."

"Horry is an adorable imp while Rule in the best 'Heyerian' tradition is a rogue turned lovely and you don't know whether to hit him or kiss him! This is a wonderful book and is one that will be read over and over again."
