Rate this:
Deborah Grantham, mistress of her aunt's elegant gaming house, must find a way to restore herself and her aunt to respectability, preferably without accepting either of two repugnant offers. One is from an older, very rich and rather corpulent lord whose reputation for licentious behavior disgusts her; the other from the young, puppyish scion of a noble family whose relatives are convinced she is a fortune hunter. The young suitor's uncle, Max Ravenscar, comes to buy her off, an insult so scathing that it leads to a volley of passionate reprisals, escalating between them to a level of flair and fury that can only have one conclusion.

Didn't finish reading it, it was too predictable and boring. Just listened to 2 chapters.

You won't be disappointed by this Heyer title. Witty and satisfying!

I read this twice in a row in a week!

This was the first Heyer I've ever read and now I want to read all of them. It's a perfect portrayal of Regency society at its best and worst: funny, stuck up, careless and carefree.

A fun and thrilling romance! There are villians, deception, overwhelming gambling debts, and true love.

One day, I will read everything that Georgette Heyer has written.
