The town of Bath offers ample opportunities for mischief - and romance Carolyn Hardy, determined to hold out for the true love promised in the romance novels she devours, has already broken two betrothals. Although she attracts the attention of many men - including the Prince Regent's brother - she knows little of their more unsavory ways, and resents the efforts of her guardian, elegant Sydney Saint-Denis, to shield her from them. To prove her mettle, heedless of any risk, Carolyn flirts more outrageously than ever, even with a gypsy prince. She certainly doesn't view Sydney as a potential suitor. In no way does the foppish man resemble the hero of her dreams. But she will learn that there's more to Sydney than meets the eye...The Bath Charade is the second book of the Bath Trilogy, which also includes The Bath Quadrille and The Bath Eccentric's Son.
