‘One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer’s books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen’s’ Joanne Harris
Annis Wychwood delights in her independence.
Beautiful, rich and far too busy for love, she has turned down the advances of many a hopeful suitor.
But when she becomes entangled in the affairs of a runaway heiress, she encounters the girl’s guardian, the notorious Oliver Carleton.
While Oliver may be a reckless and uncivil rogue, Annis can’t help but be drawn towards his wild ways . . .
