Publisher's Summary

Lord Guy Carlton, late of His Majesty’s regiment and weary from the war in France, has only wine, women, and song in mind when he rents Number 67 Clarges Street for the season. He certainly has no desire for a serious attachment - and marriage, never! Then his merry eyes spot the lovely but very proper Miss Esther Jones.

But what will be her fate if she falls in love with the notorious Lord Guy? Though Esther’s business acumen has made her one of the richest women in England, her innocence could make her a victim of the wild ways of the ton - unless the downstairs staff at Clarges Street devise a campaign to reform the rake who is laying siege to her heart.

Critic Reviews

"Chesney once again adroitly manipulates the floating upstairs populations that keeps the downstairs on its toes." ( Publishers Weekly)
"A witty, charming, touching bit of Regency froth. Highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

Not my favorite.

Sorry... didn’t love this one. Good ideas, like the story, like the narrator, but it was sort of cold. Lots of good stuff without the mysterious thing that brings it to life for me.

I would say it’s creditworthy but......
