Scarlet O'Hara meets the Scarlet Pimpernel
Why must Lord St. Evert dress like an overdone Dandy? His outlandish wardrobe belies his powerful build and the hard unyielding lines of his face. Whoever he is, he’s ruining Elizabeth Hampton’s desperate scheme to secure a much-needed rich husband. Terribly vexing, to arrive at the most fashionable Breakfast Party of the Season wearing a perfectly stunning Chinese silk gown, only to discover Lord St. Evert is clad in unmentionables cut from identical cloth.
Why, the devil, must he show up in fabrics Elizabeth searched so diligently to procure? To say nothing of the long hours she spent secretly stitching her creations together. He must be stopped. She is determined to spy out his perplexing game, and put an end to his interference.
Lord St. Evert despises pretension of any kind. He cannot abide the self-important airs put on by some members of the Ton and takes pleasure in making a mockery of Brummell’s fashion strictures. Conceited frauds! Hadn’t his grandfather’s snobbery made his mother’s life a misery? All the more maddening to discover that the one woman who captures his interest is the biggest pretender of all. He vows to teach Miss Elizabeth Hampton a lesson she won’t soon forget.
“…believable characters with realistic traits, humor, and a bit of danger to create a wondrous painting that will linger in your mind's eye long after you finish the story. Terrific!”– Huntress Reviews, 5 stars
“…a charming book, with the lightness and freshness of a sunny day in the park.”– Rakehell Reviews
If you love tongue in cheek humor, spies in disguise, and the wry humor of an Oscar Wilde play you won't want to miss Kathleen Baldwin's Notorious Aunt series.
