The day Rodney Hawkhurst rides onto her father's grand estate, Lizbeth Gillingham is a wild eighteen-year-old, with tangled red hair, dirt on her apron, and an archer's bow in her hand.

A chance encounter leads to a clandestine kiss, leaving the tomboy Lizbeth wondering if the life of a sophisticated lady could be so bad if she was on the arm of Rodney Hawkhurst...

But Rodney has not come to see Sir Gillingham about Lizbeth. He has come to borrow money for a daring sea voyage, and to ask for the hand of Phillida, Lizbeth's elegant sister. Lizbeth tried to forget about Rodney Hawkhurst - until she discovers Phillida's dread secret... and things begin to change.

A swoon-worthy romance, perfect for fans of Julia Quinn, Georgette Heyer and Jenny Hambly.
