One of best-known and most beloved historical novelists captures a whole new audience in a stunning repackage.
The three great-nephews of cantankerous Mr Penicuik know better than to ignore his summons, especially when it concerns the bestowal of his fortune -- the wily old gentleman has hatched a typically freakish plan for his stepdaughter's future and his own amusement: his fortune will be Kitty's dowry. But while the beaux are scrambling for her hand, Kitty counters with her own inventive, if daring, scheme: a sham engagement should keep wedlock at bay ...
“A writer of great wit and style ... I've read her books to ragged shreds.”
Kate Fenton, Daily Telegraph
