A sudden inheritance puts a young woman in danger in this novel from "the best of the Regency writers" (Kirkus Reviews). Jean Lindsay lives a rather dismal life with her nasty, drunken uncle, and has little to live on but her romantic daydreams—which frequently star the dashing Marquess of Fleetwater. She was used to being an object of others' ridicule. Then she received an unexpected inheritance—and as news of her good fortune spread, suddenly her worn dresses became "quaint," and her forthright manner turned magically into "charming." But while some seek to flatter her, one person seems to want her dead—and she may need the marquess to save her pretty neck . . . Originally published under the name Marion Chesney, this is a twist-filled tale of romance and suspense in Regency England by a beloved New York Times–bestselling author.
