In all her twenty- five years, lovely Venetia Lanyon has never been further than Harrogate, nor enjoyed the attentions of any but her two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then, in one extraordinary encounter, she meets a neighbour she only knows by reputation- the infamous Lord Damerel- and before she knows better, is egging on a libertine whose way of life has scandalised the North Riding for years.
"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 "Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic" -- Katie Fforde "A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds" -- Kate Fenton Daily Telegraph
