Publisher's Summary

She had dared turn a cold shoulder to London's prize catch. She was a precocious American upstart who thought beauty, brains, and bravery were enough to conquer London society. Well, he'd show her! Nobody spurned Lord David Manley, the most eligible bachelor in town - not publicly, not privately. He was determined that she'd soon be trembling in his arms, desperately in love with the man she had dared mock. David Manley always got his way, and Miss Molly Maguire presented a challenge he couldn't resist. But Lord David had never met anyone quite like this headstrong heiress who fought like the devil, looked like an angel, and had all London society dangling on a string.

In this whirlwind series, Marion Chesney brings us spirited, independent women who are at once bewitching, beguiling, and determined to make their mark on the world, be it within their social circle or extending beyond. With their arms wide open, these women are absolutely original and unforgettable, as are the tales in which they are featured.

Waste of your time—do not bother to read

I am a huge MC Beaton fan, so I was really disappointed by the story line. With the exception of Molly, the Americans were made to look like uncouth imbeciles with no class nor manners. But even Molly is described as a ‘sure shot’ as if she were from the Wild West. She goes to a blackmailer’s house to warn him to cease his blackmailing and shoots a candle flame out as he holds a candle in the dark. She then proceeds to shoot a tin can that just happens to be sitting on a fence in the distance...with the only light coming from moon. The poor American girls must be sent to England so that they can be taught manners and elocution. It’s such a ridiculous story line that I couldn’t finish it. Also, the reader’s American accents were hilariously awful.
