Description

"A five-star job of sheerly delightful romance writing."- Chicago Sunday TribuneCan the wrong bride become the perfect wife?Adam Deveril, the new Viscount Lynton, is madly in love with the beautiful Julia Oversley. But he has returned from the Peninsular War to find his family on the brink of ruin and his ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt. He has little choice when he is introduced to Mr. Jonathan Chawleigh, a City man of apparently unlimited wealth and no social ambitions for himself-but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his only daughter, the quiet and decidedly plain Jenny Chawleigh.

What Readers Say:"Heyer always writes brilliantly and is capable of conveying the deepest emotions in the briefest of phrases and subtlest dialogue.""One of Heyer's most skillfully written novels.""Has all of Heyer's usual wit, vivid characters, and attention to detail.""One of my very favourite Heyers - and one of her most profound. Wise and heartwarming.""Thoughtful and thought-provoking ... reveals depths to Heyer's writing.""Truly a gem."Georgette Heyer wrote over fifty novels, including Regency romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. She was known as the Queen of Regency romance, and was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, and her extraordinary plots and characterizations.
