Gossip, scandal and an unforgettable Regency romance. Adam Deveril, the new Viscount Lynton and a hero at Salamanca, returns from the Peninsula War to find his family on the brink of ruin. It is Lord Oversley, father of Adam's first love, who introduces him to Jonathan Chaleigh, a city man of apparently unlimited wealth, but with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his only daughter.

If you love Bridgerton, you'll love Georgette Heyer!

'The greatest writer who ever lived' ANTONIA FRASER
'[My] generation's Julia Quinn' ADJOA ANDOH, star of Bridgerton
'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's' JOANNE HARRIS
_____________

Adam Deveril returns from the Peninsula War a hero, only to find his family on the brink of ruin and his much-loved ancestral home mortgaged to the hilt.

It is Lord Oversley, father of Adam's first love, who introduces him to Mr. Chaleigh, a City man of apparently unlimited wealth, with his eyes firmly fixed on a suitable match for his one and only beloved daughter.

Though this civil contract may work on paper, saving one from ruin and bringing the other desired social status, there is only one way to find out if it can really work .
