Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Annis Wychwood delights in her independence.

Beautiful, rich and far too busy for love, she has turned down the advances of many a hopeful suitor.

But when she becomes entangled in the affairs of a runaway heiress, she encounters the girl's guardian, the notorious Oliver Carleton. While Oliver may be a reckless and uncivil rogue, Annis can't help but be drawn towards his wild ways.

"Rapturously romantic." (Katie Fforde)

Reader was not aware of Regency terms

Mispronunciatipns and unsuitable emphases limited the reader's ability to convey a tale which depends heavily on the creation of a Regency atmosphere

Poor reading

I am a great fan of Georgette Heyer generally, but this, although pleasant, is not one of her better books. There is some good characterisation, but the plot is thin and the humour depends more or less on one well-drawn, annoying character. Nevertheless, in the hands of a sensitive reader, much could be made of it. But this reader was not sensitive. She made many mistakes of pronunciation and frequently misjudged the balance of a sentence so that the emphasis fell on the wrong word. Her worst fault, though, was that she was limited in her characterisation: all the men sounded the same and were permanently irritated and harsh. This ruined any scenes that required warmth or gentleness. I don’t think she liked or understood this book.
