The golden-haired, headstrong despair of men, she seeks a husband who can duel and dice with the best of them. So Philip leaves for Paris, where his father's hopes and his lover's ideals are realised but with unforeseen consequences for them both....

This is not the best of the genre but is entertainingly read and excellent escapism.

Thoroughly enjoyed the narration that brought all the characters vividly to life. It's my first Heyer novel, but loved the detailed descriptions that created a charming sense of high society in the eighteenth century. There are some brilliantly comic parts too that had me laughing out loud.
