Lord Guy Carlton, late of His Majesty's Regiment and weary from the war in France, has only wine, women and song in mind when he rents No. 67 Clarges Street for the season. He certainly has no desire for a serious attachment - and as for marriage: never! But Lord Guy Carlton didn't factor in the lovely but very proper Miss Esther Jones. Although one of the richest women in England she is also one of the most innocent which could make her an unwilling victim of the philandering lord.

And then there is Lady Carruthers, a highly rouged widow who passes off her grown daughter, Arabella, as a school miss while setting her own cap for the young Earl of Denby, despite the fact that young Arabella is quite smitten with the dashing golden-haired earl! So once again it is up to the other poor relations to straighten out the course of true love.

Publisher: Constable

Note: Originally published: as by Marian Chesney. New York: Fawcett Crest, 1989 The Earl of Tredair had his fill of balls, routs, and silly misses, and he despaired of finding anyone out of the extraordinary - that is, until he met Miss Fanny Waverley. Most unique and intriguing, she and her two sisters were the adopted daughters of the reclusive bluestocking Madame Waverley. They had been raised as her disciples to spread the word of women's rights and to encourage poor oppressed females to stand up against the iniquities of the male sex! The beautiful and farouche Miss Fanny, however, found it quite hard to think of all men as cruel and lustful beasts - how could she when now she found herself longing to kiss one of the most hated of his breed!

Publisher: Constable

Note: Originally published: as by Marion Chesney, New York: Fawcett Crest, 1989 Though it was true, Frederica chafed at the restricted life she lived as the adopted daughter of the infamous bluestocking Mrs. Waverley, she did however agree with Mrs. Waverley's philosophy. She knew that until the day men stopped preferring lisping dimwits over intellectual equals, Frederica would be better off without them. Still, the recent elopement of her sister, Fanny, had sparked the fires of romance in Frederica's well-educated head. So it was that she was ripe for the countless charms of Lord Harry Danger, and he in turn was smitten by her outspoken beauty from the moment he rescued her from a pack of drunken thugs. Now if he would only treat her as his equal - and stop his incessant flirting!
