Blurb: Sylvester, Duke of Salford, has exacting requirements for a bride. Then he meets Phoebe Marlow, a young lady with literary aspirations, and suddenly life becomes very complicated. She meets none of his criteria, and even worse, she has written a novel that is sweeping through the ton and causing all kinds of gossip… and he’s the main character!

Review: Ho-de-do and away we go :) There is a reason the Ms Heyer's work has stood the test of time. This tale was by far and away one of the wittiest romances that I have read. And that is saying alot considering the original copyright is from the 50's :)

While I have never really been an avid reader of "the classics" Ms Heyer has whetted my appitite for more. and if you consider that she has a wide selection to pick from you can bet that this won't be the only one I will be picking up :)

With laughs aplenty this wonderful tale will be finding a home on my keeper shelf.
