Abigail Wendover, on the shelf at 28, is kept busy when her niece falls head over heels in love with a handsome fortune hunter and Abbie is forced into a confrontation with his scandalous uncle.

Miles Calvery is the black sheep of his family- enormously rich from a long sojourn in India, disconcertingly blunt and brash. But he turns out to be Abbie's most important ally in keeping her niece out of trouble.

But how can he possibly beconsidered eligible when she has worked so hard to rebuff his own nephew's suit for her niece? And how can she possibly detach from an ailing sister who needs her? This is a heroine who has to be, literally, swept off her feet...

My favorite of all the Heyer I have read so far, which is more than ten, I think. I just loved this hero, and the solution devised is marvelous.

I always know exactly what I'll get when I pick up a Heyer historical romance but never does that diminish my enjoyment. Abby and Miles are charming and have some of the most entertaining banter I've read thus far in Heyer's novels. And there is much to laugh about in this novel. Abby's older sister, Selina, is straight out of an Austen novel and could give Miss Bates a run for her money. I even laughed out loud (on a plane) when I ran across the following sentence: "The melancholy truth is, my love, that single females of her age are almost compelled to adopt dangerous diseases, if they wish to be objects of interest." Another shining novel in the Heyer bibliography.

After reading several of Heyer's books, this is by far one of my favorites! I loved that the Hero was not the young handsom and rich guy that usually takes center stag in these novels.

What I enjoy most about Georgette Heyers' work is that it's a world like that of Jane Austen. Manners, ideals and a proper way of being a lady .
This book is not a "bodice ripper" but fun romance in the regency style.
This was the first I had read of the author and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
