Publisher's Summary

Venetia Lanyon, beautiful, intelligent and independent, lives in comfortable seclusion in rural Yorkshire with her precocious brother Aubrey. Her future seems safe and predictable: Either marriage to the respectable but dull Edward Yardley, or a life of peaceful spinsterhood. But when she meets the dashing, dangerous rake Lord Damerel, her well-ordered life is turned upside down, and she embarks upon a relationship with him that scandalizes and horrifies the whole community. Has she found her soul mate, or is she playing with fire?

Great interpretation

One of the most honest stories written by Heyer, read outstandingly by Phillida Nash. Her interpretation of character is perfect.

A beautifully read romantic tale with a dark hero and feisty heroine

A more interesting plot line than in other Heyer novels with a rather modern heroine. Good fun and easy listening.
