REGENCY ROMANCE Country-bred, spirited Kitty Charing is on the brink of inheriting a fortune from her eccentric guardian--provided she marries one of his grand-nephews. Kitty has spent her secluded life pining for the wild and unpredictable Jack Westruther, but Jack's not ready to settle down. Desperate to turn the tide of her fate, Kitty hatches a counterfeit betrothal to her cousin, the mild-mannered Viscount Freddy Standen. Considered the "fool of his family," no one expects much from Freddy. But when Kitty's generous heart leads to all sorts of troubles, Freddy and Jack finally face off, and Freddy surprises everyone, not least of all, himself.

Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.
Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.
