Publisher Description

'One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer’s books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen’s’ Joanne Harris

'Absolutely delicious tales of Regency heroes . . . Utter, immersive escapism' SOPHIE KINSELLA
__________________________

Leonie Bonnard is being drawn into a twenty-year-old feud.

Justin Alastair, the Duke of Avon, is a reprehensible rake with an axe to grind. Decades ago the Comte de Saint-Vire did something unforgivable and ever since Justin has been lying in wait to settle the score.

When Justin meets Leon, a street urchin with a striking resemblance to his nemesis, he aims to use him as a pawn in his plans for revenge on the Comte. Except Leon is in fact Leonie, a beautiful young ingénue who may just steal Justin’s heart.

Can Leonie win the Duke’s affection, or will his need for revenge overcome them both?
