"A writer of great wit and style.. I've read her books to ragged shreds." -Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph The spirited and independent Miss Annis Wychwood is.twenty-nine and well past the age for falling in love. But when Annis embroils herself in the affairs of a pretty runaway heiress, Miss Lucilla Carleton, she is destined to see a great deal of her fugitive's uncivil and high-handed guardian, Mr. Oliver Carleton. Befriending the wayward girl brings unexpected consequences, among them the conflicting emotions aroused by her guardian, who is quite the rudest man Annis has ever met.. Georgette Heyer's historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers and listeners. Her smart, independent heroines and dashing heroes brilliantly illuminate one of the most exciting and fascinating eras of English history, when drawing rooms sparkled with well-dressed nobility, and romantic intrigues ruled the day. "In this delectable Georgette Heyer novel, the lady of quality and her bit-of-a-rake swain are the ones on whom our eyes are fixed. They don't play us false. Miss Heyer is in top form.romantic, amusing, and full of tart-tongued comment on the mores of the time." -Publishers Weekly "Set in Bath in the last years of the Regency, it has the authentic Heyer sparkle." -Woman's Journal

"Readers who enjoy Regency Romances still recognize Georgette Heyer as tops in the field. Eve Matheson adds to the pleasure of this story through the flexibility of her voice and tone. It's a treat to hear the starched-up dowagers, the self-important and often pompous men, the young girls just out of the schoolroom, the minor characters and, of course, the hero and heroine of the novel. The language of the early 1800's is fascinating, and the audiobooks provides an excellent example of high society during that period. D.M.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
