Publisher's Summary

The handsome but arrogant Lord Charles Hawksborough desperately wants to catch the infernally insolent thief who held him up at pistol point on the King's Highway and rode off with his family's inheritance and jewels.

Hawksborough tries just as desperately to not want the piquant and penniless Miss Amanda Colby when this young lady and her twin brother come to stay at his London townhouse during the height of the social season.

Hawksborough fears his desire for this slip of a girl as he is about to wed the most beautiful and more suitable Lady Mary Dane. Meanwhile, Amanda fears he will discover she is the thief before she can atone for the crime. Whatever is to happen, it is clear that neither is prepared for what takes place in this bewildering labyrinth of love and larceny!

Good but awkward narration habit.

The narrator was good, and did voices well. Unfortunately, she had a grating habit of raising the heroin's voice in a high shrill manner at the start of each sentence. When she lowered it, it was fine.
