"Sparkling"-Independent on Sunday

"A literary bubble bath...Take a delightful and frothy dip among the gayer aspects of the author's favorite and well worked Regency period."-Sunday Tribune

Almost an heiress
Country-bred, spirited Kitty Charings is on the brink of inheriting a fortune from her eccentric guardian - provided that she marries one of his grand?nephews. Kitty has spent her secluded life pining for the handsome, rakish Jack, who is well aware of her attachment.

A plan of her own
But when Jack fails to respond to his great?uncle's ultimatum, Kitty hatches a strategy of her own - a counterfeit betrothal to mild?mannered Freddy Standen (who neither needs nor wants the money).

And when Kitty's generous heart leads to all sorts of unintended troubles, there is only one man who can rescue her from more than one dreadful fix, pick up the pieces of her plotting and in the process her heart...

"Thus begins Cotillion, arguably the funniest, most charming of Georgette Heyer's many delightful Regency romances." -
