Vernon Alverstoke sees no reason to put himself out for anyone.

But when a distant connection asks for help, he is quickly plunged into one drama after another by the disorderly Merriville family.

Surprisingly, he finds himself far from bored - especially when he encounters their strong-minded daughter, Frederica.

However, she seems far more concerned with her family's welfare than his romantic advances...

'There is no one better at intelligent effervescence than Heyer. All her books are utter bliss' ANNA MURPHY, TIMES Pick of the Month

The narrator gets off to a poor start by mispronouncing the author’s name.

These Penguin narrations of Heyer’s books are excellent. The actors used to read seem able to differentiate so well between the characters - and it can’t be easy for a male to voice several different females. This isn’t my favourite Heyer novel but was so well read it was still hugely enjoyable. “False Colours” next!!
