"Triumphantly good?Georgette Heyer is unbeatable." ? India Knight, Sunday Telegraph

An impetuous flight...
Tiffany Wield's bad behavior is a serious trial to her chaperone. "On the shelf " at twenty-eight, Ancilla Trent strives to be a calming influence on her tempestuous charge, but then Tiffany runs off to London alone and Ancilla is faced with a devastating scandal.

A gallant rescue...
Sir Waldo Hawkridge, confirmed bachelor and one of the wealthiest men in London, comes instantly to the aid of the intrepid Ancilla to stop Tiffany's flight, and in the process discovers that it's never too late for the first bloom of love.

"A writer of great wit and style? I've read her books to ragged shreds."
Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph


"A lovely, entertaining read, full of deliciously entertaining character studies, witty dialogue, a gentle secondary romance and, of course, the main love story. This is another of Heyer's 'older heroine' novels, subtle, romantic, and very enjoyable. Highly recommended!"

"One of the wittiest stories Heyer has concocted, that will have you chuckling to yourself."

"The same flashes of wit, the wonderful dialogue, and the ridiculous intrigue that are all the ingredients of a first-rate Georgette Heyer."

"No other novelist recreates the manners, dress, behaviour, and language of the Regency period as well as [Georgette Heyer] did."

"Heyer moves into Austen territory?delightfully!"

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Heyer's large volume of works included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known also as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations.

The buildup of the story takes time but the payoff is worth it because you come to care, not only about Sir Waldo and Miss Ancilla Trent, but about the childish Miss Weld, the idealistic Lord Lindeth and a host of other people.
