The spirited and independent Miss Annis Wychwood is twenty-nine and well past the age for falling in love. But when Annis embroils herself in the affairs of a pretty runaway heiress, Miss Lucilla Carleton, she is destined to see a great deal of her fugitive's uncivil and high-handed guardian, Mr. Oliver Carleton. Befriending the wayward girl brings unexpected consequences, among them the conflicting emotions aroused by her guardian, who is quite the rudest man Annis has ever met... Georgette Heyer's historical novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers. Her smart, independent heroines and dashing heroes brilliantly illuminate one of the most exciting and fascinating eras of English history, when drawing rooms sparkled with well-dressed nobility, and romantic intrigues ruled the day.

I like Georgette Heyer's books but this one isn't my favourite. I found it hard to like Oliver Carleton. However, I think Annis is a really great character. She's smart, witty, independent, but believable. Her internal struggles about her annoying cousin, her family, and Oliver all seem very real. I recommend this book for people who like strong heroines in a Regency world.
