"If Austen was the first queen of the contemporary romance . . . Heyer is the first of the historical romance."—From the foreword by Sarah MacLean, New York Times bestselling author of Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake He's unruly. Unrefined. Unfashionable. But is that what she loves about him? Previously published as Powder and Patch, this edition features the restored final chapter. Cleone Charteris never had to look far to find an eligible bachelor. Her neighbor and best friend since childhood has made no secret of his intentions to marry her. Now that he's a full-grown man, there's only one small problem: He disdains art, fashion, and etiquette—all the things that Cleone cherishes most. If only it were possible to improve a man. . . . Philip Jettan doesn't think there's anything wrong with a man preferring manly things, but he'll do whatever it takes to win Cleone's heart. So Philip travels to Paris, where, under the tutelage of the Marquis de ChAteau-Banvau, he learns to duel, to write poetry, to find the perfect accessory for any outfit. But when the country bumpkin returns home a stylish dandy, he faces an unexpected challenge: convincing Cleone that he's still the same boy who's always loved her. The Modern Library Torchbearers series features women who wrote on their own terms, with boldness, creativity, and a spirit of resistance: AMERICAN INDIAN STORIES THE AWAKENING THE HEADS OF CERBERUS LADY AUDLEY'S SECRET PASSING THE TRANSFORMATION OF PHILIP JETTAN VILLETTE
